Begin Spirit of Joy: SOJ Home Groups Page Content

Home Groups Begin January 5, 2020

First Peter

This world looks nothing like the promised perfect kingdom of God. And yet we as God's people must live in it every day. This 7-session study walks us through this short letter and unpacks the importance of our witness in this world.

Peter writes to Christians who are learning to live out their faith in a whole new world. He doesn't want them to be surprised by suffering and persecution.  In fact, he wants them to see incredible opposition as an incredible opportunity to live their faith and to show the difference that Jesus makes.

When people who don't follow Jesus see how you're living out your faith, it will refute the prejudices that they have and they will be won over. Our genuine love for people, demonstrated in action, has the potential to be the most power apologetic to the world today.

What is a Home Group?
Home Groups are small group Bible Studies doing life together! It's an opportunity to develop the spiritual dimension & relationships outside of the group settings. Groups are comprised of 6 to 12 people, and intergenerational, children and families are welcome.

Why Home Groups at Spirit of Joy?
We truly believe that lives will be changed by consistent community and nurturing relationships in the name of Jesus Christ.

What are the hopes and goals?
We hope that there will be a deepening commitment to life in the church. We hope that the health and vitality of the church will be increased, that is, a strong commitment coming out of growth in personal spirituality and relationship. With this the hope is that Spirit of Joy will increase in capacity with families and church growth.

What are the expectations of a Home Group:
The commitment would be from 5-7pm once a week based on the selected material. Each meeting will include fellowship, food, and Bible study. Within the group there will be the opportunity to grow spiritually and in relationship with your group.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
Ephesians 6:12-13
