Parable Small Group Study

Parable Small Group Study
October 8 – November 19

The Communities of Belonging initiative saw such success with Lenten Small Groups earlier this year that we have decided to launch another short-term small group experience to prepare for the Christmas season and grow deeper in our walks with Christ and each other.

This six-week pre-advent series will dig into the parables. Many existing communities within the church will pick up this study and, as before, new groups are forming to convene in homes and locations in the Nashville area at different times throughout the week.  This study will begin the week of October 8 and end November 19.

These studies will will feature an introductory devotional by Todd Jones to launch each week with subsequent contributions from church members for each of the other days. We hope that these studies combined with group discussions will be meaningful times to contemplate scripture and to build community, strengthening old friendships and forming new ones. Here is what we will be focusing on each week:

Week 1:  The Good Samaritan (Luke 10)

Week 2: The Wise and Foolish Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13)

Week 3: The Pearl of Great Price & the Treasure Hidden in the Field (Matthew 13:44-46)

Week 4: The Wheat and the Weeds (Matthew 13:24-29, 36-43)

Week 5: The Persistent Widow (Luke 18:1-8)

Week 6: The Prodigal Son (Luke 15: 11-32)
