Learning Ministry
Ministry Mission Statement

The Learning Ministry invites people to GROW in grace through small groups and studies that lead us into deeper relationships with God and each other.

 


Get GROWing this Summer!

Summer is the growing season for almost everything –grass grows faster, hay grows in the fields, and kids certainly can’t fit in last year’s clothes by the end of summer. Summer at Chapelwood is a time for growing in grace as well. Grow Ministries, part of our discipleship pathway,has planned several new groups that are open to everyone during the summer months – whether you’re a part of a Sunday School class or not. Find a topic you think will fertilize your “growing season” and come whenever you are available.

                                        SUNDAY MORNINGS at 9:45 a.m.

Summer of Service, June 5 – July 31 (except July 3), Courtyard Room
This speaker series will explore how we as a church are living into three of our core values: Risk Taking, Stewardship, and Missional Heart. Each week,we’ll hear from a different ministry including our new church planting efforts in EaDo, the SUMMIT Mission team, global missions such as the Kenya and Costa Rica teams, and Spring Branch T-2-4. Come meet new friends and hear how we are working together to serve our church, city, and world.

Christian Relationships, June 5 – August 14, LC214-215
Keep Your Love On by Danny Silk helps individuals, families, work teams or small groups implement skills and principles that lead to healthy relationships – the kind that are marked by loving connection, respectful communication, and well-defined boundaries. This class will be facilitated by Linda Withers and a team from the Encouragers Class.

Summer Seeds for Prayer, June 5 – August 14, LC201
This class is designed for people who are looking for ways to cultivate their prayer life. Each week, we will introduce a “seed for prayer,” a simple practice that we will learn and experience together. Our time will include a brief teaching with instructions, time in prayer, and an invitation to share your experience in prayer. Facilitated by The Center for Christian Spirituality pastors and staff.

 

The Genesis Project by Bob Johnson, June 12 – July 17, Conference Room
The first two chapters of Genesis introduce us to God’s original purpose, will, and intent for creation. Bob Johnson calls this “The Genesis Project” that remains constant throughout all that happens in the Bible and is ultimately fulfilled in the ministry of Jesus as the Christ. Bob will walk you through his concise summary of the entire Bible that reveals God’s desire for us to experience oneness/wholeness with God, others, and creation.

                                                        DURING THE WEEK

Pastor’s Bible Study for Men with John Stephens, Thursdays, 7:00 a.m., Fellowship Hall
All men of the church are invited to attend at any time.

The Emotionally Healthy Woman, Wednesdays, June 1 - July 27, 6:30 p.m., YB100
According to author Geri Scazzero, becoming an emotionally healthy woman begins by quitting eight unhealthy ways of relating. When you stop pretending everything is fine and summon the courage to quit that which does not belong to Jesus’ kingdom, you will be launched on a powerful journey—one that will bring you true peace and freedom. Geri and her husband Pete Scazzero, founder of New Life Fellowship Church in Queens, New York, have helped thousands of people discover how emotional health and contemplative spirituality, when interwoven together, offer nothing short of a spiritual revolution. Wynter Patterson and Teresa Rossy will facilitate this study.

Center for Christian Spirituality Summer Reading Series, Wednesdays, May 25, June 22,July 27, August 31, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., LC201
Stretch yourself and deepen your experience of God’s life within you by reading When the Heart Waits: Spiritual Direction for Life’s Sacred Questions by Sue Monk Kidd. The book chronicles several important passages in Kidd’s spiritual journey; however, it is not strictly autobiographical. The thresholds and passageways that she encounters are quite common on the spiritual journey and helpful for all of us. Jerry Webber will facilitate the gathering nights which will provide a way to process responses to the book in the company of others. Cost is $11 for the book; register online.

Men’s Life, Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., various room
These accountability groups for men meet year round and welcome newcomers. Contact Andy Cunningham, acunningham@chapelwood.org. Facilitated by Tracy Little, Todd Genitempo, Jim Nance, and Russ Ridgway.
