Our small groups are a vital part of what we do at Christ Church, as they help us to grow deeper relationships with each other, and position us to pursue our mission and vision together. These groups gather on a bi-weekly basis in various people’s homes to share life with one another over a meal, in a Bible study and through prayer. This semester we will be following up to our current sermon series and seeking to dig deeper into how these truths apply to our lives. New people are always welcome!
Dickinson Square West – Monday Night
1 Thessalonians Bible Study led by the Neumanns
1 Thessalonians is an inspiring letter from the apostle Paul to the church in Thessalonica full of gospel-saturated doctrine and advice for applying that doctrine. Join us as we see God’s love for his people, how to have hope in this fallen world, and what we can expect in the near and far distant future.
Passyunk – Tuesday Night
Hosea Bible Study led by the McCurleys
This semester we will be studying the book of Hosea. Did you know that God commanded a prophet to marry a prostitute? We will be looking at why God would do such a thing and how through the story of Hosea we have an opportunity to experience the hesed (steadfast) love of God in a deeper way. We will see how this Old Testament prophet points us to the Gospel and a God whose unrelenting love is never thwarted by our waywardness.
Pennsport – Wednesday Night
Jonah Bible Study led by The Nussbaums
This semester we will be studying the book of Jonah. While most people are familiar with this biblical story, many are surprised at the deep spiritual truths contained in it’s pages. Join us as we take the time to see the many parallels between Jonah and Jesus, who Jonah was, why Jesus spoke of him, and how we are all like Jonah.
Pennsport – Thursday Night
Micah Bible Study led by The Magitzes
What does God require of us? Micah engages this question and the challenge of heeding God’s call to his people to live justly, extend mercy, and use our power and influence humbly. Our God is a God who cares deeply about justice and this is a book that resonates with our desires to see goodness all around us. Please consider joining us for our study as we find that Micah can inspire and transform us to do the justice we yearn for, and love the kindness we long to see!
Girard Estates – Thursday Night
Things Not Seen: A Fresh Look at Old Stories of Trusting God’s Promises Study led by the Crowells
Hebrews 11 is in the Bible to remind us that God hides his most precious treasures for his saints in their most difficult and painful experiences…We do well to listen to these precious biblical friends who have run the race before us. Their example reminds us not to begrudge the difficult afflictions we endure, because they are producing for us “an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison” (2 Cor. 4:17). A study based on a book by Jon Bloom and the corresponding Biblical passage. https://static.crossway.org/excerpt/things-not-seen/0715c.pdf
