Connect Groups at Riverside

 

 

Most of our classes are tackling the same material but geared for different age groups.  

 

 

 


For every Christian, a deep knowledge of the Word helps make the difference between a shallow faith and a life of trust and obedience. This kind of faith does not come from information but through the transformation when you "let God's Word dwell in you."

Explore the Bible helps participants understand the Bible passage within its larger biblical context. Every session leads to an application so that each person is moved towards being transformed into the likeness of Christ, being challenged to practice God's truth in everyday life.

Each month the book being studied changes.

Bible Studies for Life helps people know Christ, live in community, and impact the culture and world around them. This series offers balanced studies by topic, focuses on real-life issues that let people see how Jesus is the answer to their greatest need--how the Bible meets their life right where they are. Topics change on a monthly basis.
