Will meet once a month
The idea behind this life group is to be like a book club, except with movies instead. The plan is to watch a secular movie together and then discuss it afterward. The discussion will involve examining the positives and negatives of the worldview, or the message and theme of the film. We’ll examine where it pulls from the Christian worldview and where it pulls away from and we’ll also just talk about whether we liked it or not. The plan is to watch it together either in the Shed or a members home, with plenty of snacks involved!
Our first meeting will be a quick one after a Sunday service where we will plan the schedule. At that meeting the group will decide which movies to watch from along list of movies in addition to suggestions from the group.
The reason for choosing exclusively secular films to watch is for us to practice the way we consume secular media through the lens of the Christian worldview.Together as a group we can grow in the way we critique the secular worldview and the way we compare and contrast it with our own worldview.
Facilitator: Justin Oliver

This life group is for ALL woman ages 19-99 as each brings a unique perspective to our daily walk with Christ to the group. We will gather in homes to enjoy festive foods, a short devotional and then focus on a time of sharing, connecting and growing together. This is a very relaxed and casual group that allows each person to participate at their comfort level. We take turns hosting, bringing food and leading in the devotional on a volunteer basis.

Join us for a study of Psalms 1 - 72 using Proverbs 31 Ministries' app. Don't have a smart phone? That's OK. Copies will be available for you! The principle for the app is that every day, you give God the first five minutes of your day so that you 'share whispers with God before shouts with the world.' Come join us!
