Fall 2011

GROW in your relationship with God. PURSUE relationships with others . SERVE the world.


Fall 2011

Catalog What is reaLife? reaLife together is a ministry that encompasses all of our connecting opportunities. These opportunities may be in the form of Bible study groups, fellowship groups, activities, or events. However we choose to connect, we want to live reaLife together. Why is it so important to connect with others? God designed us as relational beings—first to have a relationship with Him, and secondly to have a relationship with others. While we can connect with anyone anywhere, there is a special bond that we share as believers in Christ that allows us to encourage one another, love one another, and help one another as we live reaLife together. How do I know what reaLIfe opportunities are available? In this catalog, you will find a variety of opportunities for the whole family. Young or old, single or married, there is something available for everyone. How do I join a group? Simply e-mail the group leader at the e-mail address provided to sign-up, get more information, or to ask questions.

Study Description: The vision for this group will be to do as Jesus did: Make disciples who go out and make disciples, who go out and make disciples! We will learn an effective, Christ like approach to discipleship, training on how to identify, recruit, and develop gifted leaders, and an explanation of the role of personal relationships in making disciples. There isn't much theory. Instead, it is a day-by-day, boots-on-the-ground game plan. You will need 20-30 minutes five days each week to do the preparation for our group discussion. The exciting news is that by the end of the first week, you should be able to explain why making disciples is a priority for both you and our church. By the end of the twelfth week, you should be better equipped to make disciples. Our objective is that in addition to building relationships, you will become a more intentional disciple-maker and have a strong grasp of the process Jesus modeled for us!

Moses Calling and Character—A LifeGuide Bible Study By Stephen D. Eyre Group Type: Mel’q Gpmrnq Guide: Dale Scholfield dale308@zoominternet.net Study Fee: None Materials Needed: Bible and Study Book Day/Time: Wednesdays at 6:30-7:30AM Location: Panera in Cranberry Childcare: Not available

Study Description: As the one called by God to lead His people out of Egypt, Moses faced some significant challenges: a stubborn ruler, a fierce army, a vast desert to cross, a people prone to complaint and idolatry. But through it all, God was faithful to guide and provide for Moses as well as shape his character in powerful ways. These studies will open our hearts to the same God and help us serve with strong character in the leadership roles He has called us to. We gather all year round for breakfast, fellowship, Christian study and prayer.

Study Description: LIFE HAPPENS—Happiness and Healing are yours for the choosing... We've all been hurt by other people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. And as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. But the question we all face is, Where do we go from here? Life's Healing Choices offers freedom from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits through eight healing choices that promise true happiness and life transformation. Using the Beatitudes of Jesus as a foundation, Senior Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and John Baker, who is also a pastor at Saddleback, developed the eight choices shared in this book. In addition to practical, encouraging biblical teaching, each chapter includes two real-life stories of men and women whose lives have been transformed by living out the eight choices in this book. Through making each of these choices, you too will find God's pathway to wholeness, growth, spiritual maturity, happiness, and healing. You'll find real answers, real hope, and a real future -- one healing choice at a time.

real-life discipleship (Equipping Disciples Who Make Disciples) Group Type: Mel’q Gpmrn Guide: Tom Neiswenter tneiswenter@hotmail.com Study Fee: $15 for training manual Materials Needed: real-life discipleship training manual and Bible Day/Time: Saturdays at 7:30AM (Starting October 1) Location: The Neiswenter Home—Cranberry Childcare: Not available

Study Description: The vision for this group will be to do as Jesus did: Make disciples who go out and make disciples, who go out and make disciples! We will learn an effective, Christ like approach to discipleship, training on how to identify, recruit, and develop gifted leaders, and an explanation of the role of personal relationships in making disciples. There isn't much theory. Instead, it is a day-by-day, boots-on-the-ground game plan. You will need 20-30 minutes five days each week to do the preparation for our group discussion. The exciting news is that by the end of the first week, you should be able to explain why making disciples is a priority for both you and our church. By the end of the twelfth week, you should be better equipped to make disciples. Our objective is that in addition to building relationships, you will become a more intentional disciple-maker and have a strong grasp of the process Jesus modeled for us!

daughter's growing up. The world has a lot to say to her, and she's starting to listen. Even if she doesn't quite know it, she needs you more than ever. It's time for you to press in, to tell her some things she might not know (or might have forgotten) about who she is in God's eyes. Just five conversations, but they could be the basis for a whole new way of relating to your daughter.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength .
