ACG Schedule

Current ACGs

Sojourn ACG (Room 18)

Sojourn ACG focuses on topics related to Christian Living. Certainly not lite on content or theology, teachers work to connect their topics to everyday life as a follower of Jesus.

  • Putting our Faith to Work, team-taught, starting Feb 5th. In this series, we will work our way through Christ Community’s Statement of Faith, asking questions like “how does this belief shape my week?” and “how would my life be different if I did not believe this?”  The emphasis is on the practical nature of our faith and how we live out what we say we believe. A great team of teachers will be guiding the discussion.
  • Past topics: Conflict Engagement (Jan 8 – Jan 29), Battling Fear and Doubt (Nov 13-Dec 11). The Prayers of Jesus (Sept 25 – Nov 6). Giving Thanks Together: Building Grateful Communities, with Joel Wong (Aug 14 – Sept 18). 

Cultivate ACG (Room 15)

The Cultivate ACG focuses is geared towards the life of the mind, cultivating Biblical and theological knowledge that will, of course, spill over into our lives as we seek to glorify God and enjoy him forever.

  • The Wisdom of the Early Church, team-taught, starting Feb 5th. In this series, we will revisit the wisdom of the church through the ages with special attention given to the early church. We will consider how the church handled issues that have contemporary relevance – being a minority in the culture, killing, disease, relationship to the state, controversy and scandal, and wealth. Joel Wong, Nate Hendershott, Stephen Morton, Bob Whitaker and Dan Waugh will be teaching this topic.
  • Past topics: The Birth Narratives (Nov 13- Dec 11). Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with Tim O’Connor (Sept 25- Nov 6). The Challenge of the Old Testament, with Dan Waugh (Aug 14 – Sept 18). 

Women’s ACG (Room 17)

The women’s ACG is a wonderful community of women committed to growing together in their knowledge of God and in their daily walk with the Lord. 
  • Spiritual Practices, team-taught, starting Feb 5th. For the rest of the semester, the Women’s ACG will take a look at a handful of Spiritual Practices including prayer, fasting, study, service (and more). Together, we will study both the biblical precedent for and the history of these practices. Each week, a different teacher will offer some practical suggestions to jumpstart a new discipline or refresh an old habit. 
  • Past topics:  The Story of Esther (Jan 8-29), The Fruit of the Spirit (Sept 25- Dec 11). Jonah: A Study of Mercy (Aug 14 – Sept 18).

International Coffee Hour (Room 5)

Internationals and Americans are welcome to socialize, have coffee and baked goods, and study the Bible together. We will be studying the Gospel of Mark and the Life of Jesus. Rides can be arranged. For questions and further information, please contact John Lee or the church office.
