Join a Risen King Fall Growth Group!
The Risen King Church Family is launching two new Growth Groups this fall. We’re encouraging everyone who can to join a group in order to get or remain connected during the busy fall season. So please prayerfully consider joining us.
Both groups will meet at the church office: 1855 Sullivan Lane, Suite 160, Sparks
Growth Group #1
Mondays, 7 – 8:30 p.m.: “The Eight Covenants of the Bible”
Begins Monday, October 1
Elder Keith Maslowski will lead this study consisting of video teaching and group discussion. Via video, Messianic Rabbi Mottel Baleston presents solid Biblical teaching on God’s three covenantal agreements with mankind as a whole, and the five covenants He made specifically with the people of Israel. God did not choose to give the world His entire written Word at one time. Rather, the writing of the Scriptures occurred over a period of sixteen hundred years. Step by step, the plans and purposes of God were unfolded at specific points in history. Each step of His plan was absolutely flawless. A comprehensive understanding was not possible for mankind until the entire canon of the Scriptures was finished in John’s Revelation.
Growth Group #2
Wednesdays, 7 – 8:30 p.m.: “The Good News & the Galatians”
Begins Wednesday, October 3
The Galatians, specifically the cities of Derbe, Lystra, Iconium and Pisidian Antioch in Asia-Minor (present-day Turkey), were among the first Gentiles to both hear and gladly receive the Good News of Eternal Life which God gives to believers, through the Apostle Paul and Barnabas. However, soon after Paul’s departure, a contingent of so-called “Christians” showed up and told them that they and Paul were wrong! These false teachers claimed the Good News had some requirements attached and that unless the Galatians conformed to their teaching, they would not be accepted by God. This false teaching has made its way into the Church and our society today, so much so that most people who identify themselves as Christians accept it as true! Find out what this great deception about how to get to heaven is, and how you can be used to get the truth – the real Good News of the Gospel – out to those who don’t know any better.
Growth Groups are designed to foster “koinonia”, the Greek word which is translated “fellowship” in our New Testament. The idea is that Christians need to be sharing and participating in each other’s lives through the week by loving, caring, encouraging, and praying for each other for our spiritual growth in Christ. This is what makes “church” meaningful — loving relationships. And as so many of us are coming and going on vacations and are involved in other recreational pursuits during the summer, being involved in one of these Growth Groups, and/or our Men’s Ministry Meeting, and/or our Thursday night Bible study, is vital to experiencing the full value of the Christian life. So while you’re busy going out this summer, why not reserve some time to come together and stay together by being part of at least one of our Growth Groups or Bible studies?
