Navigators 2:7 Discipleship

This series is designed to help build a strong foundation for your Christian life through enriching Bible study, scripture memory, and group interaction. With this biblical and practical approach to discipleship, this group will yield long-term, life-changing results. It is foundational in teaching the basics of living the Christian life and will give you the tools to develop an intimate relationship with God. In a nutshell, it teaches how to develop relationship with God, other believers, the Bible, and how to become a soul-winning Christian. It is like the four legs on a chair.

LEADER: Debbie Eckmier

DURATION: Starts Oct 9 - Jan 15 (7-8:30pm)

LOCATION: Kitchener

It is not a prerequisite to have been with this group for Part 1 & 2. We will continue to work through Revelations. In this class, we will study what the sign of His coming and of the end of the age are?

We will explore the relationship of the book of Revelation to the Gospels and understand the NT and OT prophecies and teachings about the last days.

You will learn a way of doing Bible study (inductive method) that will completely open up and unlock your understanding of the Bible. It simply takes an investment of your time that is totally worth it to build a foundation and strengthen your spiritual life! We answer questions in a step-by-step workbook during the week, and then get together for a lively discussion of what we have learned.

REQUIREMENTS: For anyone. You can choose a regular ‘Precept upon Precept’ workbook for $30 or an ‘In and Out’ workbook for $25 (homework is reduced). These can be purchased from the leaders on the first night.

Seeing the Invisible

In this Life Group, we will learn how, with eyes of faith, we can not only see, but experience God moving in supernatural ways. Join us as our hearts are encouraged and our expectations are raised to believe God to work mightily in our lives.

Valiant Man

LEADERS: Jeff Chesney, Nathan Turner

Developing and maintaining a healthy sexuality is every man’s battle. We invite you to be a part of Valiant Man.

REQUIREMENTS: For men age 18 and older. Max 10 spaces. Cost is $35 (which covers the cost of the workbook).
