Small Group Bible Studies

Current RegistrationOngoing Classes

Dear Church Family,

I began my journey as a new Christian, when my friend Rufus Smith discipled me as a new believer. I can still remember the little pieces of paper he would write study questions on. We bantered back and forth discussing and debating our newly gained knowledge and love of God and the scriptures. More than my philosophy and religion classes, more than my theology course in seminary, the kitchen table fellowship is what rooted and grounded me as a growing Christian.

It was this kind of study that strengthened and matured me. Also it was that kind of small group study that matured the Brookhollow family. Those days when you would see almost every growing Christian in this church carrying a discipleship study bible. We grew more, reached more, gave more and baptized more people during that period than any other time in the 28 years of this church. And it is what I believe God has called me back to as a pastor and teacher.

Pray about your spiritual growth. Select a small group that you can study, learn, pray and grow with. God by his grace has chosen you to “grow in grace and the knowledge of The Lord Jesus Christ”. 2 Peter 3: 18

Be Encouraged,

Small Groups

Current Session: May 7th – June 13th

Queenston: Tuesdays – 7pm
Eldridge: Wednesdays – 7pm
Bingle: Thursdays – 7pm

Firm Foundation

In Firm Foundation: The Shepherd’s Class, Growing in Christ and I Am A Church Member. Members will study together as a cohort starting the Sunday after the date joined. Members learn the vision, history, philosophy of our Church, and the expectations of responsible church membership through study of what it means to be a Christian and how to grow in Christ

Coffee & Christ

Coffee & Christ is small group Bible discovery for continued spiritual growth, evangelism and discipleship.

The name “Coffee & Christ” expresses the relaxed and conversational small group atmosphere. In a Coffee & Christ group, participants discover for themselves and with others how to authentically live out what the Bible says and means.

GriefShare

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through this 13-week cycle.

Living Single

Many singles are often overlooked or marginalized in our Christian culture and churches, but this isn’t how God sees them. He places a very high value on His singles, and we should too.

Taking truths from 1 Corinthians 7, Dr. Evans shares three vital principles for singles: How to wait on the Lord and his timing and direction, how to work for God and experience the satisfaction of fulfilling your personal calling in life, and what it means to be wedded in the Lord, whether that is through an eventual marriage or through your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Momentum Men: Risk

Risk is for men who are ready to go to the next level in their faith—and ready to say goodbye to playing it safe when it comes to radically trusting their Savior. RISK challenges men to avoid eliminating risk from their lives, because when it comes to faith, all the energy spent eliminating risk actually becomes a barrier in their spiritual journey. Predictability. Control. Safety. Comfort. Jesus challenges God’s man to throw all those words out the window.

Her Journey Bible Studies

Queenston: Tuesdays – 7pm
Eldridge: Wednesdays – 7pm

It's Not Supposed to Be This Way

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.

Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, helps us to:

  • Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
  • Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
  • Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle.
  • Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us.

Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God’s truth.

Bless These Lips: Make Over Your Words to Influence Your World By: Sharla Fritz

Words are powerful. They can build up or tear down. They can affirm and teach or criticize and condemn.

Bless These Lips is a women’s Bible study that addresses the prevalence of negative speech and encourages participants to choose God-pleasing words.

By God’s grace, a mouth makeover can improve our relationships and affect our attitude toward life. Our words can enrich our connection to God as we spend more time in prayer and praise.

Most important, God desires that we use the gift of speech to give Him praise, encourage others, and verbalize our faith in Christ as Lord and Savior.

Discussions:

  • Exfoliate Scrub with Forgiveness
  • Soothe Comfort with Encouragement
  • Plump Enlarge with Praise
  • Line Speak with Truth
  • Color Choose Words with Grace
  • Gloss Shine with Thankfulness
  • Seal Protect with Discretion
  • Smile Share with Joy

Living Like You Belong to God

Can Others See That You Belong to God?

God calls us to a life of joy, obedience, and trust. He calls us to be different from those around us. He calls us to be holy.

In this rich study, you will discover that holiness is not an arbitrary standard within today’s church or an unreachable goal of sinless perfection. Holiness is about pleasing God–living in such a way that it’s clear you belong to Him. Holiness is what makes you unique as a believer in Jesus Christ.

Come explore the beauty of holy living and see why true holiness and true happiness always go together.

Discussions:

  • A God Who Separates Light from Darkness
  • We Belong to a Holy God
  • Our Call to Live Differently from the World
  • God’s Purpose in Setting Us Apart
  • Living Daily in the Light
  • What Holiness Looks Like in Our Relationship

*Designed for Single Mothers
Accessory: (The Village)

Written by a psychologist who’s successfully navigated single motherhood herself, this book helps single moms believe they and their families deserve the best life has to offer.

Packed with practical tips, smart strategies, and ways to improve the well-being of single moms and their children, this book shows single moms how to improve their leadership and parenting skills. It tackles pressing issues such as self-care, a support network, organizing, finances, discipline, and more.

A Woman Who Doesn't Quit

A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit – Bible Study Book 5 Habits from the Book of Ruth By: Nicki Koziarz
*Designed for, Married Women
Accessory: (The MRS.)

Every woman will eventually face it: the temptation to give in and give up. But something transformative happens when a woman decides to persevere in the face of difficulty and pain. A woman who refuses to quit influences her world in ways she could never have imagined.

Unfolding over 6 sessions, Nicki Koziarz walks women through the Book of Ruth, focusing on the Moabite woman’s 5 practical habits that kept her eyes on God: Ruth accepted the assignment of refinement, followed through on her commitments despite her feelings, remained open to the movement of God, gave others what she needed, and moved forward in faith.

Discussions:

  • Learn to follow through on your commitments despite your feelings
  • Create space for the movement of God and release control to Him
  • Embrace the grace of refinement rather than the relief of release
  • Invest in the world with joy
  • Cultivate an unbreakable spirit
  • Persevere through life’s most difficult moments
  • Refuse to give up on your heart’s deepest desires
