Discussion Guides

Below is a collection of past discussion guides used by our Community Groups. Each discussion guide is correlated with a past sermon series or a book. We believe that one of the most important aspects of discipleship is the community that you walk with and so we encourage you to invite a friend or two join you in your study. 

The Liturgical Life

The Liturgical Life Discussion Guide is a 10-week curriculum that walks us through the practices of 8 different liturgies: Silence & Solitude, Simplicity, Scripture, Prayer, Sabbath, Generosity, Fasting, and Hospitality. 

The Fruit of the Spirit

The Fruit of the Spirit Discussion Guide is a discussion-based curriculum that takes a deeper look at the text in Galatians 5:16-25 (ESV).

The Gospel According to Ruth

This Ruth Discussion Guide uses the Inductive Method to take us through the book of Ruth. The Inductive Bible Study is a three-step process you can bring to any text in the Bible to help you understand, interpret, and apply what you are reading.

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry Discussion Guide goes hand-in-hand with John Mark Comer's book of the same title. This book identifies hurry as one of the greatest enemies to our spiritual lives and provides a roadmap to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive amidst the chaos of the modern world. 

The Way of Faith

The Way of Faith Discussion Guide is based on the text in the book of James. It examines the great paradox that we are saved by grace and grace alone; and yet, according to the book of James, faith without works is dead.

The Gospel of Mark

The book of Mark tells of the ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death, burial, and the discovery of his empty tomb. This discussion guide uses the Inductive Method to study the text.

The Emotionally Healthy Church

The Emotionally Healthy Church curriculum goes hand-in-hand with Pete Scazzero's book of the same title. This series focuses on the idea that true discipleship integrates emotional and spiritual health. The curriculum uses tools that can help us look beneath the surface of problems, break the power of past wounds, live a life of brokenness and vulnerability, recognize and honor personal limitations, embrace grief and loss, and make incarnation your model to love others.
