What are Community Life Groups?

Community Life groups are small groups of people who meet with a purpose and are intentional about having spiritual conversations while following Christ. True spiritual growth happens when people connect face to face. That's hard to do in a church row. With MPC Community Life Groups, we encourage people to move from rows to circles, sharing genuine fellowship with other Christians. Real relationships are built out of shared experiences: meals together, conversations, adventures, serving others together, being there for each other when a need arises, and creating memories together. As we follow Christ together, friendships will emerge and true discipleship will take place.

The Gospel of John

Led by Syndria Lowe   

The book of John lays the very foundation of the Gospel: Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and through Him we begin to truly live. This study takes an in-depth look at the life of Christ, from a miraculous public ministry that confirmed His calling, to personal revelations that can transform the life of every believer. Rich in theology, and essential to evangelism, the book of John provides a definitive guide to Christ's powerful message of hope.

This group meets Sundays 9:30 am -10:25 am in the Calvary Pastor’s Study. 

Unshakable Hope by Max Lucado Led by Molly & Tom Maxwell   

This is a 12-week study which will meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Maxwells’ home. Class begins September 18th. The cost of the study guide is $7.99. Every class includes a 10-12 minute video.

This study centers around how we view problems in light of God’s many promises in Scripture. We enjoyed Max Lucado in The Story and hope this book will be thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Please sign up as soon as possible so that we can get the books ordered!

The Gospel of John 

Led by the Motte/Gilbert Group

This class will be +/- 12-week study beginning September 23rd. The only materials you will need are a Bible and a journal. If you do not have a Bible, we can fix that. Classes take place on Sundays 9:30 am-10:25 am in Calvary Tower Room. (Class takes place during Sunday School)

We are opening the Bible and jumping right in to the Gospel of John! No prior Bible-reading experience is necessary. Many of you have always wanted to read the Bible and have never started.... well, John is the perfect jumping-off place! The gospel begins with John the Baptist’s ministry, features Jesus’ first miracle in Cana, highlights many of Jesus’ healings, His inspired teachings, His painful challenges, His death, and His Resurrection. All of this from the Spirit-driven words of the Apostle John. 

Please join us in cracking open the Bible...WARNING! You will likely be embarking upon a lifelong practice of Bible study. 

The Gospel of Mark-

Led by the Lunch Ladies Group

This group meets in Trinity Parlor at noon. They are doing a video study of the gospel of Mark by Lisa Harper.
