General - Exploring the Bible - Su21

When: Sunday, Evening    Where: (70 block) Wisteria Ln Tracy, CA 95377

True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God. Francis Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. Through 12 sessions, Francis works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life. Our group is open to Young Adults, Singles, Married, and those with or without children. The group will meet from 5:30-7pm and plan to have a covered dish supper each week. South Tracy/Glenbriar Neighborhood. (Near the ACE Train Station)

General - True Spirituality - W40

When: Wednesday, Evening    Where: (1500 block) Tamarisk Lane Tracy, CA 95377

Our group is a mixed group of men/women/married/divorced, and our new study will be...True Spirituality: Becoming a Romans 12 Christian by Chip Ingram - Christians today live in a world that is activity heavy and relationship light. The result is spiritual emptiness. We struggle to know what God wants from us and for us...and we're unsure what a real relationship with God really looks like. But that was never God's idea. HIS idea of faith is not about rules or religion - it's about relationship. That's where God tells us to start. In Romans 12, God gives us a clear picture of what Christians should look like at the root level. If you're ready to move from "in" to "all in," then you're ready to become a Romans 12 Christian. The next steps of your journey toward true spirituality start here.
