Find Your Place to Connect

One of the best ways to connect with others and grow spiritually is by joining a small group (Sunday school) for Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Whether you are a brand new Christian, a young adult hungry to learn, or a senior adult with lots of life experiences, married, single, or single again, we have a place for you!

Men, women, and children* of all ages, gather for a potluck dinner in the Gym at 5:00 PM. (Please use the CLC entrance.) At 6:00, men and women will split off into separate study groups*. We'll start in the book of Acts. Women are encouraged to bring their daughters, and men are encouraged to bring their sons. No matter your age or stage of life, come fellowship and pore over the Word of God together, where young men and women are encouraged and discipled by their elders.

Dinner will be a potluck, so we ask that everyone planning to eat also brings a dish to share. For ideas on what to bring, feel free to contact:

Julie Sanborn, , 520-449-0791
Michael Sanborn, , 520-449-0789.

*Please contact Julie to request childcare for ages 0-4. No snacks or food needed. Children 5-and-older will join in the study with their parents.

Tuesday mornings from 8:00-9:00 AM in the Church Library
Jim Fielder,
Currently reading and discussing The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel

Why does God permit evil? Why do some prayers go unanswered? Why has God allowed the church to engage in brutality and hypocrisy? Tough questions demand convincing answers. Join journalist Strobel as he once again journeys across the country challenging philosophers, theologians, and ordinary believers to defend their faith. The evidence he uncovers may surprise you!

In The Case for Faith, bestselling author, journalist, and former atheist Lee Strobel turns his investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief in God--the eight "heart barriers" to faith:

  • "Since evil and suffering exist, a loving God cannot"
  • "Since miracles contradict science, they cannot be true"
  • "Evolution explains life, so God isn't needed"
  • "God isn't worthy of worship if he kills innocent children"
  • "It's offensive to claim Jesus is the only way to God"
  • "A loving God would never torture people in Hell"
  • "Church history is littered with oppression and violence"
  • "I still have doubts, so I can't be a Christian"

This book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in defending their faith to skeptical friends, or during the hardest of times, when they have to defend their faith to themselves in moments of doubt.

Books may be purchased from your vendor of choice.

All men are invited and encouraged to attend this monthly fellowship from 7:00-8:00 AM in the Great Room on the third Saturday of each month*. We will have a devotional, testimony, praise and worship, and highlight ministry options available. Breakfast will be provided.
*Periodic special fellowships take the place of this event. Past fellowships included camping, welding, and hatchet throwing.

Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 PM in the Gym.
New players welcome, invite a friend! For more info, contact Jake Panter at (903) 413-1353.

This team’s focus is “Leading Men to Jesus,” building Godly men who love the Lord and walk in a way that gives glory to Jesus, and helping men engage as Christian leaders in their family and workplace. Lead a Bible study, help plan events/activities, or serve as ministry projects arise. Contact Men's Ministry Team Coordinator Lee Byrd at  or (830) 237-1499.

Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More by Melissa Spoelstra

March 23-April 27
Wednesdays from 6:00-7:15 PM
AMC 120
Facilitated by Peggy Bales, , 210-381-4788

6-week study comparing our own dissatisfaction with our life circumstances to the grumbling of the Israelites as God leads them out of slavery. By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God's ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God's character and promises.
