Bible Studies – Wednesdays

Wednesdays • 6:45-8:00pm

Learning from the Word and Loving Jesus
Fireside Room 253
Begins January 29, 2020
Led by Pastor Tim
 
Many of us have struggled to consistently read, study, and benefit from the Bible because we don’t know how to get to the meaning and personal application. This class is about becoming equipped to read, study, and apply the Bible so that it comes alive for us and changes us. We will learn a lot about the Bible itself and practice using some key questions and techniques for the interpretation and personal application of various kinds of texts. Take your Bibles along to the class. But a book entitled, “A Visual Theology Guide to the Bible” will also serve as a resource for us. Please sign up and let us know if you plan to participate so that we know how many books to order. Note that it is OK if you sometimes travel or for other reasons are unable to make it to the class. Come when you can and you will benefit from our learning and practice together.
 
 
Go Fish – Women’s Bible Study
Room 250
Begins January 29, 2020
Led by Polly Johnson
 
This new study by Andy Stanley will take the struggle out of sharing your faith. Go Fish offers a new perception of the word “evangelism” by showing how believers can make it natural, easy part of everyday life. Divided into a six-session study, participants will enjoy the DVD lessons and thought-provoking study guide that help change the way they view sharing their faith.


REAL Men

Every other Friday, 7am, Arnie’s Restaurant

REAL exists to strengthen our relationship with Christ and with each other by authentically sharing our faith journey so we all can be encouraged and grow in our faith.
 
REAL is a group that strives to create authentic and meaningful relationships among men and that desires a deeper relationship with Christ. It is a group that believes God is actively working in our lives, and that we all have a story that He wants us to tell. It is not a Bible study or an accountability group, and it is not exclusive to RRC, so invite others! Each meeting will feature a speaker. See below for the current schedule.
 
Note: Starting in January, we will be meeting at Arnie’s Restaurant, 34 S Squires St, downtown Rockford. The restaurant isn’t open at that time, so we have the place to ourselves. Coffee and refreshments provided.
 

Goals

  • Relationship – God created to us to be in fellowship, and when we share in life, we experience the fullness of the life he created for us.
  • Encouragement – God has enriched our lives with experiences that are not just for us. The blessings and tribulations of our lives are also intended to enrich the lives of others.
  • Authenticity – We are perfectly loved by God and our need for acceptance is found in Him alone. This frees us to express ourselves as who we are, not as who we wish we were.
  • Love – With humility and grace towards others as God does with each of us.
