First Christian Church
God's vision for every one who is a part of FCCMC is for us to GROW. When you look at a healthy tree you see growth. But all parts of the tree are growing simultaneously. The roots must continue to grow deeper while the trunk gets stronger, the branches reach farther, and it produces greater fruit. That's a great metaphor for our lives. The roots represent our relationship with God. We need to see it deepen at all times. The trunk represents our relationships with each other in the body of Christ. It needs to be strong. The branches are our outreach, the opportunities we have to reach farther into our community and our world for Christ. The fruit is the evidence of our faith demonstrated by works - and we want do greater things for Him. In order to see this kind of GROWth occur in our adults, we want to see everyone be a part of a GROWth Group. GROWth groups are small groups that will meet either in a host’s home or here at church. Some may meet on Sunday mornings at church before the worship service, while most will meet on Sunday nights. We all have the need for community – “doing life together” – more than ever before … which is why we are committed to the ministry of GROWth Groups. If you're not in one yet ... let us get you connected with one today!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT ADULT BIBLE STUDY
Clarity (noun) - the quality of being coherent, intelligible; the quality of being easy to see or hear; the quality of being certain or definite; the quality of being transparent or pure.
No matter what definition of clarity that you use, we probably wish each were true about our lives. Yet despite our best efforts at organization and control, much of life often feels unclear. God has a clear vision for each of our lives - a way that He has designed us to live so that we can have "life to the full". We will only experience that when we do life His way by His principles. During this Bible study, we will examine some Biblical examples of people who struggled for clarity over the same issues with which we still deal with today (our schedules, finances, careers, relationships... just to name a few). Be here on Wednesdays this fall to gain some clarity about how we can draw closer to God's vision for our lives in every area.
