This Study is for those men* already attending a CG** but want to supplement that with further study.
*Men who are post High School
**It is understood that there may be extenuating circumstances keeping you from attending a CG. We certainly want to side on grace if that’s the case and yet you still wish to attend this group, we would just like to talk to you beforehand. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
An evening study that meets from 7:30pm - 9pm (March 14th - May 30th).
This group will meet in Room 3 at the Centre and will be led by Aaron Boswell and Chris Pulsifer.
Commitment to attending each week is required. This is not a drop in and/or “come and go” group but one where those who sign up at the beginning will be expected to continue through the length of the study. It is understood that things do "come up” – travel, sickness, etc. – but with the rare exception attendance is mandatory for the sake of the individual and the group itself.
Some things to know about the study itself
Mining God’s Word: How to Study the Bible is a 12-week course designed to introduce Westsiders to inductive Bible study, leading to life-long digging and delighting in God’s Word. This course is an introduction to the methodology of inductive study of the Bible. Inductive study consists of careful observation of the text leading to sound interpretation and appropriate application. Westsiders will learn study strategies and principles of interpretation and application throughout the course and apply them to the book of Philippians. Although the book of Philippians will serve as the primary “training grounds,” the course aims at imparting study skills that are applicable to the entire Bible. The course also aims at fostering sensitivity to literary genre and at cultivating inductive Bible study as a lifelong habit. The amount of time needed for homework won’t be overwhelming but you can expect about 60-75 minutes of study a week. You will be asked to share your insight with the group at large as much as you feel comfortable doing so.
This is also a study where there will be some memory work as part of your weekly homework.
Dinner is not provided for this study, but we will have lots of great coffee to help keep you dialed in.
There is a $25 cost for this study to provide for the Student Workbook. No other fee is associated with this course.
