LIFEGROUPS/BIBLE STUDIES

Life Groups Promo Fall 2021 from moonvalley on Vimeo.

GROWING TOGETHER IN GOD'S WORD TOGETHER

Life Groups and Bible Studies are MVBC's way of helping people connect relationally and grow spiritually by moving from rows in church to circles in homes. They are small groups of people who get together regularly to study some aspect of the Bible, while also getting to know each other. 

LIFEGROUP RESOURCES

what's the purpose?

CONNECT 

LifeGroups and Bible Studies help people connect relationally through home gatherings. You have the opportunity to meet new people, learn more about each other, and bring life to your group!

GROW 

What happens when you exit the church doors after Sunday service? How do we continue to grow? LifeGroups and Bible Studies are a genuine effort to transform the rows in the church into circles within our homes. We desire authentic times in God's word together, growing spiritually together, and encourage you to take the next step and join a group today! 

CREATE

In LifeGroups and Bible Studies, we create. We create lasting relationships. We create growth with each other. We create moments and opportunities that last. We create leaders. Join us today and come create with us! 

LEAD

Why stop at attending? The purpose of LifeGroups and Bible Studies isn't just to attend, but also to develop new leaders. Start a new group; create a new Bible Study. Whatever your desire and passion is, we want to help guide and develop that passion! Become a leader today!

Time: Sundays @ 9AM
Dates: March 6 - April 10
Location: Moon Valley Bible Church
Covid-19 Mask Policy:  Masks optional.

Description: First Thessalonians is one of the Apostle Paul's earliest letters (or epistles), written to new believers in Thessalonica. Through this letter, Paul encourages us to walk with the Lord, grow in spiritual maturity, advance in sound doctrine, resist errant teaching, and look forward to our future with the Lord.  We all need Paul's teaching and reminders.  This study is intended for new believers as well as mature Christians.


LIFEGROUP - MV MOMS

Leader(s): Dannie Gatliff
Time: Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Moon Valley Bible Church

Description: MVMoms is a group specifically designed for moms with kids in the house. Have you ever thought that every waking moment was filled with work for someone else? As moms we tend to put ourselves last. God has called us to motherhood and it's a blessing, but it's a hard road sometimes and we weren't meant to walk it alone. Join us as we meet together for some "me" time. We will meet for an hour and discuss more than just being a mom. We'll go through books, studies, and sometimes just talk for mental health. 


LIFEGROUP - THE AMANOS

Leader(s): Ricky & Mavis Amano
Location: MVBC 
Time: 11:15 AM (after service)
Currently Studying: Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm In A Chaotic World  by Max Lucado
Covid-19 Mask Policy:  Masks optional.

Description: The Amano LifeGroup is an opportunity to connect with others over fellowship and study.  Come join us after church service!


BIBLE STUDY - WOMEN

Leader(s): Linda Gemmill
Time: Every other Thursday, 9-11AM
Location: Moon Valley Bible Church

Description: Studying: Elijah, by Priscilla Shirer. Join us through 7 sessions on the prophet Elijah. 

Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory—months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable.

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that allowed Elijah to stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.

Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

Join us through 7 sessions as we explore how God intended community to be, starting in Genesis through the creation of the church and beyond. We will work through the book and learn about 5 life patterns that help us to construct meaningful relationships. 


LIFEGROUP - MATHIS

Leader(s): Todd Mathis
Time: Sundays @ 9AM
Dates: Starts April 3, 2022

Location: MVBC 

Description: Paying Close Attention To Jesus' Last Instruction To His Disciples

What if you led a group of imperfect students, and the remaining time that you had left with them was down to the wire. What would you tell them?

In John 13-17, we have Jesus’ last instructions to His disciples and ultimately to us. Jesus gives us the example of maturity through a new commandment, He gives His disciples the antidote to troubled hearts, tells us how to ensure that our prayers are answered 100% of the time, and tells us what is involved with loving Him and His Father. He gives us excursions into the special relationship with His Father, how the relationships within the eternal triune God function, and what He has prayed to the Father about us. Jesus also tells us how we can successfully love in the supernatural way that He loves His disciples.

In this class, we will study sections of this marvelous passage and pause to specifically think through the implications in our life from Jesus’ Farewell Address. 

Please join us as this time could significantly impact your life.
