COST: $15

LIFE GROUP DESCRIPTION: Forgiving is not something that we just do by willful choice, but rather the effortless outcome of knowing the truth in our hearts. When trying to forgive those who have hurt us is difficult to do, it is because we believe something that runs contrary to forgiving. The answer is not trying harder to forgive, denying our feelings, or pushing through and just doing the right thing. The answer is in knowing the truth from God’s perspective with our hearts about the one who has hurt us and the offense we harbor. When we are able to view the one who hurt us and their offense from God’s heavenly perspective, we will experience compassion and forgiveness from the heart will follow without effort.”Effortless Forgiveness”will help you to identify the lies that you may believe that are hindering your ability to forgive freely from your heart.

Is Jesus Christ really that different from other religious teachers? Aren’t all the major religions basically the same?

COACH: Pastor Steve Miramonti, discipleship@rockchurchnow.com

COST: $18

LIFE GROUP DESCRIPTION: As belief in the secular gods of atheism, hedonism, relativism, and humanism continues to grow, it’s more important than ever for believers to be able to defend and share the claims of Christ. Of course, this clash of worldviews is nothing new.
Not only has the Christian worldview been devalued and dismissed by modern culture, but its believers are also openly ridiculed as irrelevant. This Bible study challenges the popular and trending philosophies of the day, skillfully pointing out the fallacies in their claims and presenting compelling evidence for absolute truth as found in Jesus and revealed in Scripture.
This study helps seekers explore the claims of Christ and provides Christians with the knowledge to articulate their faith that Jesus stands tall above all other gods.
