We are so excited that in 3 weeks we will be kicking off our local small group for couples. Our current plan is to meet on Sunday nights twice a month to study the Transformed Spiritual Growth Series taught by Rick Warren from Saddleback Church. In future posts, we’ll share what the group thinks about this series and decide whether or not it will make our Top 100 Small Group Studies list. Here is what we’ve read about this study….
TRANSFORMED is a seven session series that Rick Warren ran as a church-wide 50 days of transformation campaign about 3 years ago at Saddleback Church (which is based in Southern California). During the series, he will be teaching about how to grow in 7 key areas of one’s life, spending one week on each topic: Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Emotional, Relational, Financial and Vocational. We plan to not only watch the 7 small group sessions, but to also watch the related sermon messages on the weeks when our group does not meet. Plus, we’ll be using the Transformed Study Guide.
We hope to explore what the bible says about these 7 key areas and learn about the habits, truths and characteristics that enable true transformation. Many of us are struggling with relationships, finances, and general questions about the meaning of life. And the world’s promises leave us empty and searching for more. God’s will is the only answer that promises to TRANSFORM our lives from the inside out.
Right now we are focused on finding 4 to 6 couples for our group so we’ve been asking everyone we know and promoting it in our church bulletin. So far 3 couples have committed so hopefully God will send a few more our way.
