Do you ever wonder if and how we can really believe the Bible to be true? Do you ever wonder if we can know for sure if we’re going to heaven? Then this class may be for you. In the course of 6 to 7 weeks, we’ll hit several common questions about God, faith, the church and the Bible.

One of the basic distinctives in this course is fun. Yes, fun. It’s NOT a formal lecture. Rather, it’s fun and interactive. So whether you’re one who enjoys talking or one who would rather sit and take it all in, you will most likely enjoy this casual learning environment.

Next class: Sunday, September 11, 2016

Did you know that God has uniquely wired you to make a difference for Him in the church and in your world? During our S.H.A.P.E. class you will learn your unique S.H.A.P.E. and where to use it.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS – What has God supernaturally gifted me to do?
God gives you spiritual gifts to use in ministry. (1 Corinthians 12; Romans 8; Ephesians 4).
HEART – What do I have passion for and love to do?
The Bible teaches that your heart determines why you say the things you do, why you feel the way you do, and why you act the way you do. (Proverbs 4:23)
ABILITIES – What natural talents and skills to I have?
These are natural talents God gives you so you can accomplish His purposes. In Exodus 31:3, God gives “skill, ability, and knowledge in all kinds of crafts…”
PERSONALITY – Where does my personality best suit me to serve?
Your personality affects the way you use your gifts. For instance, two people may have the gift of evangelism, but if one is introverted and the other is extroverted, that gift will be expressed differently.
EXPERIENCES – What spiritual/painful/educational/ministry experiences have I had?
There are five common experiences that influence your service to others
educational, vocational, spiritual, ministry, and painful experiences.

Just as the name describes, LIFE GROUPS are where life happens.  God never intended us to do life alone, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…” Hebrews 10:25a.  LIFE GROUPS at North Ridge come in many sizes and locations.  There are groups that meet Sunday mornings in classrooms around the church; there are groups that meet other days of the week on campus, there are dozens of groups that meet during the week in homes around the community; there are groups for women, men, singles, and more.

Visit our LIFE Group pages to read more and to see how to get plugged in.

Visit our pages with Women in mind to see the list of bible studies and groups we have at North Ridge.
