Friday Bible Study - Francis Chan "Basic"

  • Apr 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We continue with the Francis Chan DVD study called “Basic.”

"If I only had this as my guide … if all I had was the Bible … and I was to read this book and then start a church, what would it look like? Would it look like the thing that we've built here and all refer to as church? Or would it look radically different?" - Francis Chan

Trends come and go in our culture and the church seems to follow. BASIC is a series of short films that challenges us to reclaim the church as Scripture describes it to be. This series speaks to those who have questions about the church and to those who may have lost interest in the church.
What is church?
You are church.
I am church.
We are church.

Session 3 will focus on the Holy Spirit
God gives each of us the gift of the Holy Spirit, our source of supernatural power. But today the church acts neither "super" nor "natural." How do we join the move of what the Spirit is doing? Maybe once we understand who the Holy Spirit is, the church can stop being so ordinary, and can start being the agents of change in the world that God designed us to be.

This is a video-based series, but we will not be watching the videos as a group. Instead, we ask that you watch the video ahead of time (approximately 15 minutes), so that we can focus on a discussion during the time we meet. We have set up a private site on YouTube where we will upload the video. Once you RSVP, within 1-2 days we will email you a link for the video.

For our Friday night discussion, we will use the associated reflection guide, which you can view and download for free:

      A friend is going on a mission trip to Peru this summer and she is having a fund raiser tonight. Thought I would go and support her efforts.

    Unfortunately I have another commitment for this date. Since I cannot be in two places at the same time I will see you next time. I will miss the discussion.
