Thursday Life Group
Thursday Life Group at Earl & Marria’s place, 181 Greene Avenue – 7:00 PM
On Tuesday nights we focus on our Bible Study using the Navigator’s 2:7 series. As we’re starting a fresh season we’ll be beginning in Book 1.
What is the significance of the name The 2:7 Series? The name is based on the Scripture reference Colossians 2:7—the statement of the Apostle Paul to a New Testament church: “Rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” What the apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, expresses in this passage clearly defines the specific goals of this training:
- For a Christian to become built up in Christ and strengthened (or established) in his or her faith. This series of courses includes instruction in practical Bible study techniques, Scripture memory skills, how to have an exciting devotional life, and how to be more effective in evangelism.
- For a Christian to learn to overflow with gratitude in everyday life. The series will help an individual learn to experience and enjoy a stable and consistent Christian walk.
- For a Christian to be taught (or instructed). This implies that training needs to take place before believers develop into a follower of Christ whose life can significantly impact in the lives of people around them.
The three books are designed to be completed in sequence. Book 2 builds on the work done in book 1, and book 3 builds on what your group has accomplished in the first two books. You will enjoy each book’s biblical and practical approach to discipleship. As many others have, those of you who participate in a 2:7 group can expect to experience positive life changes as you study and apply this time-proven material. Here is the main content of the three courses.
Book 1: Growing Strong in God’s Family
This first book in The 2:7 Series you complete exercises that strengthen your spiritual foundation through enriching Bible study, Scripture memory and group interaction.
