Spring Small Groups Descriptions 
March 1 - April 5

Defending the Historicity of Jesus' Resurrection—Pastor Eric (Co-ed)
 The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15 the following: "And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins…If we have put our hope in Christ for this life only, we should be pitied more than anyone." The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation of the Christian faith. If the resurrection didn't happen, then Jesus was simply a good man who proclaimed a false gospel and we have no hope for this broken world. Yet, if Jesus was truly raised from the dead, then He is who He said He was and there is no other way to heaven except through Him. Christianity rises and falls on whether the resurrection actually happened. Join Pastor Eric as he shares the historical evidence that supports the reality of Jesus being raised from the dead and how to use this evidence to prove to others that Jesus is alive!
Financial Peace University—Daron & Nancy Zolman (Co-ed)
 If you have never attended Financial Peace University and would like to learn how to steward your money in a Christ-honoring fashion, then be sure to join Daron and Nancy for  Financial Peace University! With FPU, you will equipped to make your money work for you by learning how to budget, payoff debt, invest, plan for your future, communicate in marriage about finances, and more. This small group will be 9-12 weeks.
Work as Worship by JD Greear—Pastor Kelly  (Co-ed) 
Many Christians—from the CEO to the teacher to the stay-at-home mom—spend a great deal of time working and yet do not realize how their work intersects with their faith. They compartmentalize their faith to Sunday morning and see the rest of their week as having little to do with their walk with God. Scripture, however, makes no division between the sacred and secular parts of our lives. God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him. Join Pastor Kelly as he helps us understand how we can see all of our life as an act of worship, including or work.
The Women of Easter by Liz Curtis Higgs—Jana Moody (Women Only)
 With unforgettable insights and powerful life application for today's women, Liz Curtis Higgs delves into the biblical text to help us view Easter through the eyes of three women named Mary, each of whom has a life-changing encounter with Jesus: Mary of Bethany, who prepares the way for the Lord’s burial when she anoints His feet and fills the air with her perfume; Mary of Nazareth, who remains by His side from His first breath to His last, her loyalty unwavering; and Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, who bravely supports her Teacher through His darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of His resurrection. What a trio. What a Savior! Your mind and emotions will be engaged and your faith strengthened as each scene unfolds, preparing your heart for a richer, deeper Easter experience. Higgs, a seasoned Bible teacher and award-winning novelist, combines her storytelling skills with a thorough verse-by-verse study of Scripture as together you explore the remarkable lives of The Women of Easter.
Maturity 201—Cal and Tammy Monroe (Co-Ed) 
If you have completed Membership 101 and have not taken Maturity 201 in our Next Steps Pathway, be sure to sign up with Cal and Tammy as they lead our next Maturity 201 in this upcoming small group. After we confess faith in Christ, we are called to grow or mature in our faith and become more like Christ as we pursue Him daily. In Maturity 201, you will learn the biblical foundation and importance of spiritual disciplines as well as practical ways to practice spiritual disciplines daily that will help you mature as a Christ-follower.
Red Sea Rules by Robert J. Morgan—Marsha McDaniel (Women Only)
Life is hard, especially for Christians. It is certain that we will face difficulties and that God will allow them. But just as certain is the fact that the same God who led us in will lead us out. As The Red Sea Rules makes comfortingly clear, He is in control. Using the Israelites' story in Exodus 14 as an example, Robert Morgan offers ten sound strategies for moving from fear to faith. Just as Moses and the Israelites became trapped between Pharaoh's rushing armies and the uncrossable Red Sea, so are we sometimes overwhelmed by life's problems.
Titus by Mike Ackerman—John Hannon (Men Only) 
This letter between Paul and Titus can be seen as a family conversation on how to relate well in a society at odds with faith and how to relate with other believers. This is a reminder for Christians today to pursue godly lives no matter what environment we find ourselves in. Join John as he breaks down Paul's letter to Titus and helps us better understand how to live for Christ daily regardless of where we are at the moment.
