As we transition from the end of summer and into the fall our pattern of meeting weekly in small groups will also resume. This September we will be offering two different groups, each focused around a particular book. One group will be working through Paul Tripp’s book, “Parenting: 14 Gospel Principals That Can Radically Change Your Family” and the other group will be working through Tim Keller’s book, “Prodigal God.”
Keep in mind we are also changing up the flow of these groups as we will no longer be breaking for 3 months in the summer, but meeting for three months and then taking a month off.This means the upcoming groups will meet for about 12 weeks and then take the month of December off.
The aim of each group is to read through a chapter a week and meet together to discuss and apply what we are learning. We are still ironing out some of the finer details, but here is what you will need to know in order to sign up.
Parenting, by Paul Tripp: will meet Monday nights at 6:30pm at the Wagner house. Please make arrangements for childcare. After all, working through a book on parenting while having our kids underfoot is similar to trying to change the oil in the car while driving 65mph on the highway! In all honesty, we all know just how much help we need as parents and we want this evening to be focused on listening and learning from each other as well as time to pray. You can order the book here through Amazon.
Prodigal God, by Timothy Keller: will meet either Wednesday or Thursday evening (TBD). This book is a wonderfully helpful (and challenging) look at the parable in Luke 15 of the prodigal son, the father and the older brother. This book is aimed at helping us understand the radical nature of grace and our own default mode of merit. You can order the book here through Amazon.
