Bible Conversations // John’s Gospel

I had known neither the astonishing depth nor the strange, life-giving power of Scripture until I learned to read it closely in the company of friends. As often as you come, you are expected to bring observations and questions about the passage from John that we will have read for that week.

| Wil Rogan | Grace Campus | Sundays | 11-12PM |


13 Reasons (To Live by the Spirit)

Want to know more about the Holy Spirit? Who is He and what does He do? This is an informative and experiential class based on A.B. Simpson's work on the Holy Spirit. We will look at the role of the Holy Spirit through Scripture and learn to listen to and trust His voice and work in our lives.

Flannery O’Connor and Religious Knowledge

The fiction of Flannery O'Connor contains a distinctive "religious epistemology," that is, a distinctive view of how we acquire knowledge about God. Our group will give a careful reading to several of her short stories, and at least one of her novels, with an eye to understanding how our knowledge of God is related to our attitude toward our limitations and shortcomings.

| Jason Baehr | Long Beach | Wednesdays | 7-9PM |

What are Life Groups?

Life Groups are small, seasonal gatherings around a common theme or activity. They're led by people just like you, and they take place in houses, apartments, restaurants, coffee shops, parks across the city, on Grace’s campus, and beyond. In them, you have the opportunity to know and be known by people of all kinds who share the Grace community in common. You come as yourself, and you meet others as they are.

Life Groups are about sharing life with one another. And that can be as simple as starting a conversation, showing up, or asking a few questions. Because it's not a matter of doing something spectacular. It's about being present in the simple things—letting the life of Jesus shape us in our recreation and our routine.  If you have any questions please email Alex Absalom at aabsalom@gracelb.org
