All Other Adult Journey Groups
For 2019, our theme has been The Story. In our Journey Groups, from January-March, we looked at His story in the second half of the book of Acts. During April-June we looked at Our story as we celebrated our 40th Anniversary and studied through the book of Galatians, looking at Paul's writing to a group of Christians in the early church as we discussed their story. During July-September, we will look at My Story. For this session we have decided to do a series on spiritual disciplines based on the book Spiritual Disciplines for Spiritual Life by Donald S. Whitney.
In the series, we will explore topics such as Praying the Bible, Why God Answers Prayer, Bible Intake, Scripture Mediation, Family Worship, Fasting, Journaling, Silence, Solitude and The Lord's Day. During this series, we will have times of teaching & discussion in classes, but also look for ways to make these practices an active part of our Journey. It is our hope that this series will help you grow in godliness and provide you with a refreshing opportunity to embrace the pursuit of holiness through a lifelong delight in the disciplines. To that end, we will start this series on Sunday, July 7, in a combined class in the Auditorium to set the stage for our study of Spiritual Disciplines.
|Young Adults/Professionals||Fellowship Hall||(Meeting with Fellowship Hall Class)|
|We believe today’s young adults, people in their 20s-30s, are more open to being challenged than the church is sometimes willing to risk. If you are seeking to grow in your relationship with God and others – and not afraid to ask hard questions and confront inconvenient truths – this community is for you.|
|Spiritually Single||S204||Mark Behel, Tom McKee|
|Sometimes, churches can seem like they are exclusively designed for couples or families. This group is different. It is composed of folks who find themselves searching, and on a spiritual level, having to go it alone. When you walk through our door, though, you discover that there are others willing to make that journey with you. If you are looking for a group that is open and honest about life, welcome home.|
|If you are the kind of person who doesn’t mind questioning your own conclusions, confronting your own perspectives and intentionally exposing yourself to diverse opinions, the Sonlight class is for you. Our children are mostly raised and out of the house (mostly), so we enjoy spending time together both in and out of class. Stop by and visit us. You’ll find spirited but respectful discussion. And maybe make some new friends.|
|Do you remember where you were when Sputnik circled the planet? How about rotary telephones? Or when you had to get up and walk across the room to change the channel on the TV? Those who attend the Friendship Class remember. But we welcome anyone who wants to study God’s Word in an accepting atmosphere and make rich, meaningful friendships. After all, that’s the name of our group!|
|General Adult-Fellowship Hall||Fellowship Hall||Dan Beasley, Stuart Whiting|
|Come one, come all! We don’t check your ID at the door. You don’t have to pass a basic Bible knowledge quiz to get in. If you’re interested in learning more about the Bible in an open atmosphere which includes both lecture and discussion, this group is for you. You can sit quietly and listen or join in the conversation. Either way, many guests and new members find this a great entry point into Twickenham.|
|Young Marrieds & Families||S201/S202||James & Mary Miller|
|Whether you’re still picking the rice out of your hair or are already driving that minivan you swore you’d never own, navigating family life requires lots of support and encouragement. Classes and discussion start with scripture and always circle around to applications specific to marriage and family. Then, there’s the friendships, understanding and practical help you’ll need when things get tough.|
