Summer Study 2020
This summer, our church will walk through Dr. John Perkins’ book, One Blood, in to process, pray, confess, and grow together. From June 21 to September 13, we will journey slowly through this book, following a shared reading plan and discussing each chapter in our DNA Groups. We’ll hold church-wide discussions on three Sundays before our weekly Digital Gathering: July 19, August 16, and September 13 at 10 AM.
To participate, complete the Summer Study 2020 Registration. You’ll be able to choose between downloading an eBook (immediate) or registering for a free hard copy (1–2 weeks shipping time). Check out the study guides as you prepare for our church-wide discussion:
- Week 1: The Church Should Look Like That
- Week 2: One Race, One Blood
- Week 3: A Lament for Our Broken Past
- Week 4: Preparation for Church-Wide Discussion 1
- Week 5: The Healing Balm of Confession
- Week 6: Forgiveness: It’s In Our DNA
Our prayer is that this summer will be a season of increased understanding, biblical exploration, true repentance, and the earliest steps forward in reconciliation. We long to see biblical reconciliation as Dr. Perkins defines it: “the removal of tensions between parties and the restoration of relationship.” This is the reconciliation that the gospel empowers and brings the most glory to Jesus.
DNA Groups are groups of 2–3 people of the same gender who are committed to Christian friendship and seeing one another pursue Jesus and serve Jesus more deeply through Bible study, accountability, and mission. DNA Group Bootcamp exists to build up women and men to start, join, and strengthen DNA Groups. We’re launching a Digital Bootcamp!
To participate: Sign up by filling out this DNA Group Interest Form. When the form has been submitted, you’ll receive an email on how to set up a Right Now Media Account. Within the week, you’ll receive another email with a link to set up your account and begin the training!
The time commitment is less than two hours, and it can be done at your own pace and in multiple sittings if you’d like. After the training is completed, we’ll reach out to you regarding DNA Group placement.
Moving forward all Community Groups will gather digitally in order to continue caring for each other and their neighborhood while practicing social distancing.
Community groups exist to reflect and advance the gospel. They are multicultural families who seek and serve Jesus by caring for each other, serving their neighbors, and renewing their city.
Along with weekly digital gatherings our Community Groups stay connected through the week over group messaging and email and we would love for you to join!
