Learn Groups

At Living Word we want to encourage people on their spiritual journey.  We have studies, small groups, mission/service opportunities and fun events scheduled year round to help you connect with God and others as we all grow in faith.

Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings, we offer two worship services at 9:00 am and 10:30 am. In addition, we also have adult Sunday morning classes.  These classes are designed to help you grow in relationship with God and others.  You are welcome to visit any class of interest to you.

Session 2 Learn Groups | 6:30 – 7:30 pm

  • Introduction to the Gospels – the Story of Jesus Christ – Christian discipleship begins with an understanding of who Jesus was, what Jesus did, and why Jesus taught the things he taught.  This entry level Bible study class with Pastor Michael McIntyre will look at the fundamental Christian story – the life, ministry, message, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as presented in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
  • Christianity – the Basics  Who is God?  What is the church?  In this class led by Pastor Greg Finfrock, we will dive into examining basic truths about who God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are, as well as what kind of church Jesus asked his followers to create.

Session 2 Early Learn Group | 4:30 – 5:30 pm

  • Faithful:  Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph, facilitated by Wendy Sain.  This study by Adam Hamilton examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph.  Like Joseph, we all encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves.  This study will help you learn to accept and glorify God even when unexpected situations make it difficult to do so.
