Small groups are one of the best ways to be involved at the Advent. God created humans to be relational, and we need others to help us apply the Gospel to our lives. Typically consisting of ten to twelve people, the Advent’s small groups provide a place to connect, to encourage one another with the Good News of Jesus Christ, to study the Bible, to pray communally, and to serve others.
Some small groups beginning this spring:
A new 6-week Small Group for men and women will study the book, When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurts the Poor…and Yourself. It will meet on Tuesday evenings, beginning April 4, 6:30-8:00 pm. It will be hosted by Rachel and Charles Fry and facilitated by Bethany Rushing, Advent’s Director of Mission and Outreach. When Helping Hurts offers a different framework for thinking about poverty and its alleviation. Rather than simply defining it as a lack of material things, the book addresses the roots of the issue: broken relationships with God, self, others, and the rest of creation.
Seamless: Understanding the Bible As One Complete Story
Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Participants will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word. This seven-week women’s small group, hosted by Miriam Morris, will meet on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:30 pm beginning April 6.
