Equipping Groups

The Apostle’s Creed

The Apostle’s Creed is a 12 session video driven course featuring Matt Chandler, the lead pastor of teaching at The Village Church in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex.

For more than 1600 years, the Apostle’s Creed has united the church around core Christian doctrines as revealed in Scripture.  This historic confession points us to the foundational beliefs of our faith and to the life-changing truth of the gospel.

This study will consider the value of declaring our shared beliefs with one another and will affirm the long faith tradition of the Christians who came before us.

  • CHANGE: Begins October 4, 2017
  • Wednesday, 6:30 p.m., Room 218

The Search for Significance

This is an 8 session, small group that gives practical help to believers in applying God’s truth and gaining a real sense of self-worth.
In the Bible, Satan is described as a liar. Christians need to be aware of Satan’s lies in order to recognize God’s truth. Once aware of the truth, believers can then build a healthy view of themselves as they renew their minds. Participants will learn to recognize Satan’s lies, rely on God’s truth, and avoid the need for approval and performance-based traps as they build a healthy, biblical perspective on self-worth.
