Loxley Groups

Summer Semester 2019
May-August

Loxley Groups have one purpose:

To Bring People Together

We believe God created us to live in relationship with others. Only then can we love, lead and live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, because life is simply better together.

CHILDCARE: No
COST: $10 workbook 

DESCRIPTION: Friendship: Transform Through Strong Relationships – is an 8 session men’s Bible study by Kenny Luck. God’s Word is clear about the importance of godly friendships — and how God designs them to complete us spiritually. If you ever hope to win the battles you face in your spiritual journey, you must be connected to godly men. The problem is that many men today act as if they don’t need friends — and they’re paying the price. Risking relationships is not easy for men, but it’s non-negotiable for God’s man. When you stand with others who share your spiritual goals, you achieve them faster. That’s God’s way. Godly friendships create consistency, provide care and support, stimulate healthy confession, produce new connections, and make you complete in Christ. They produce positive changes in your character, convictions, conduct, and commitment to do life God’s way.

10 Decisions That Will Transform Your Life an 10 Lies That Can Prevent You From Making Them by Stephen Arterburn (All Ages)
LEADER: Anita Green
DAY/TIME: Monday 6:30pm, Starting Sept 9th
LOCATION: Ministry Center Banquet Room
CHILDCARE: No
COST: $12.00
DESCRIPTION:  DO YOU WANT TO GET WELL?

The power to heal—physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually—is in God’s hands. But the choice to be healed is yours. Everyone, at some level, needs healing. You may have prayed for healing many times, for many years. Perhaps you have lived with your brokenness so long that you have become accustomed to it. Maybe you wonder just when God is going to take all the hurt away.

He can. But you also must choose to let the hurt go and let the healing begin.

In this special edition of Healing Is a Choice, author Stephen Arterburn offers a unique combination of book and workbook, outlining ten choices crucial to receiving healing. Embracing these choices means rejecting the lies we often tell ourselves. These are not hoops God requires you to jump through to earn your miracle; they form, instead, the journey He desires for you. He can—and will—walk with you. But you must put one foot in front of the other and choose to let the hurt go and let the healing begin.
