FOCUS GROUPS




The Lord Jesus taught His disciples in the setting of a small group. At Hillcrest, we follow our Lord’s example in Focus Groups. Focus Groups meet for a number of weeks to study the Bible together. These studies are organized by topic and are available for men and women of all ages. We encourage you to jump in and take your next steps in becoming like Christ. Register for a Focus Group below!  For more information contact Mariah Rollins in the Church Office.

We are inundated with songs, movies, and advice that contradicts God’s design for love and intimacy. Emotions rise and fall with a simple glance, touch, kiss or word. Against this cultural sway, the author of this study offers an eternal, counter-intuitive perspective on love from the biblical book Song of Solomon.

In His Image

Length: 6 Weeks
Wednesdays, 6:30p–8:00p
Nine Mile Campus, L104
Leader: Wend Westmoreland
Book Fee: $10
Childcare Provided? Yes

Sometimes we ask What is God’s will for my life? when we should really be asking Who should I be? The Bible has an answer: Be like the very image of God. By exploring ten characteristics of who God is―holy, loving, just, good, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise―this book helps us understand who God intends for us to be. Through Christ, the perfect reflection of the image of God, we will discover how God’s own attributes impact how we live, leading to freedom and purpose as we follow his will and are conformed to his image.

Open Your Bible

Are you longing to hear from God, aching to know who He really is? The beautiful truth is this—we can encounter the living God today and every day in the pages of His Word. Whether you are a seasoned Bible reader or struggle to keep up with studying Scripture, Open Your Bible will leave you with a greater appreciation for the Word of God, a deeper understanding of its authority, and a stronger desire to know the Bible inside and out. Using powerful storytelling, real-life examples, and scripture itself, Open Your Bible will quench a thirst you might not even know you have—one that can only be satisfied by God’s Word. The Bible is sufficient and true. God’s Word is for you and for now.
