Group 6 | Waiting On God

Leaders:

Cynthia McCrae

Curriculum:

Are you waiting for God to answer your prayers? Do the days, weeks and years go by without evidence that your deepest longings could ever come true? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, you are facing a common faith-building challenge in the Christian life, and this book has the guidance you need to endure victoriously.

God has very special plans for your life, and the way He most often prepares you for them is through times of directed, active, purposeful waiting. So through timeless, biblical teaching, Dr. Stanley gives you the practical wisdom you need to make the most of the delays and follow God’s lead to the blessings you long for.

With counsel for staying on track when the tunnel is getting dark, claiming God’s promises, and finding purpose in the waiting, Dr. Stanley draws on personal experience and biblical principles to offer you encouragement and guidance no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.

Single, Married, Separated and Life after Divorce Expanded Edition - In this book, Dr. Myles Munroe goes more in depth exploring the full range of human relationships. He demolishes the myths surrounding 'singleness' as he declares that it is okay to be single, but not good to be alone. Stepping out of the single life into the married life is a big step and Munroe offers tried and tested truths enabling men and women to survive the change from singlehood to marriage. Unfortunately, as more marriages are ending in divorce there is a desperate need for answers to the haunting questions that trouble the divorced person. Dr. Munroe does not avoid the tough questions as he tackles them one at a time. His answers will encourage and instruct those looking for answers to hopeless situations.

Curriculum:

YOUTH 6th - 12th grade :: Jesus established the model of discipleship by forming and leading the first discipleship group — and it worked. The twelve men who emerged from Jesus’ closest circle took the gospel to the world and ultimately laid down their lives for His gospel.In Closer: How to Be a Student Who Makes Disciples, Robby Gallaty presents a practical, easy-to-implement system to help students grow in their faith. This eight-session Bible study offers a manual for making disciples, addressing the what, why, where, and how of discipleship. Discipleship groups can create an atmosphere for fellowship, encouragement, and accountability—building an environment where God can work. D-Groups, as Gallaty calls them, can teach students how to grow in their relationship with God, how to defend their faith, and how to guide others in their relationship with God.

Curriculum:

Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering? In WHY SUFFERING? Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered together provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing answer. Responses like: Where there is the possibility of love, there has to be the reality of freedom, and therefore the possibility of pain. Wishing God had made a different world is to wish yourself out of existence. In comparison with other world religions, the Christian response is highly distinctive.

Leaders:

Shari Swain

Curriculum:

What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful?Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, helps us to:

  • Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
  • Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
  • Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle.
  • Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us.
  • Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.
