Small Groups



Weary travelers. You've seen them - everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks. Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We've all seen people like that. At times we are people like that - if not with our physical luggage then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags?

For some it will be during the daylight, for those on the other side of the world it will happen at night. Regardless of the time zone, the entire planet will soon experience an event of shocking magnitude: the disappearance of hundreds of millions of people off the face of the earth! Those missing will be Christians, living and deceased, for whom Christ returns and with whom He is united in the air. That event will be preceded by many things we see happening in our day. It will be followed by the most tumultuous period in earth's history. Is this scenario news to you? What in the World Is Going On? will provide a map for your prophetic future.

Join group leader Lindsay Jones as he explores Hebrews 12, a study on how to faithfully endure the race that God has set aside for each one of us. The idea comes from a book by Steve Pettit called Run the Race.  We will not be using the book as a study guide, but it will be referenced. 


Principles include:

  • Knowing that God has prepared the race
  • Keeping our eyes on Jesus during the race
  • Running with endurance the race filled with difficulties and discipline
  • Submitting to the Coach
  • Allowing God to renew and revive us along the track
