Orchard Groups

Go to: Orchard Women Connect     Study Groups

You matter. You matter to God, and you matter to us. We need each other, we need to gather corporately in worship on Sunday mornings, and we need community as we do life together. In Act 2:46-47, we see the Lord blessing the efforts and obedience of the early church as they gathered in worship together and in their homes. “And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were bring saved.” (Acts 2:46-47)

Who Is God? A Study of the Attributes of God

Sundays, 9:30-10:30 am, Jan 31st - Apr 4th, Front Room
Come take a journey with us to learn how God has given us the grace of the incredible revelation of Himself to us. As we will dive into the scriptures to understand who He is, we will learn of His grace, mercy, holiness, and His infinite perfection among many of His other attributes. This group can be for anyone, whether you are new to the pursuit of Christ or have been walking with Him for a long time. Join us as we study who God is.

Thessalonians 1 & 2 - Spirit-filled Living During Uncertain Days

Sundays, 11:00-12:00 am, Jan 31st - Apr 4th, Front Room
Members of the church in Thessalonica expected Jesus to return at any moment within their lifetime. Nearly 2,000 years later, most Christians also believe we are near the imminent return of Christ. Over this 8-week session, we will provide a cultural and historical comparison between the church in Thessalonica to current world events unfolding daily. Join us as we study Paul’s letter and as we learn some practical applications to prepare for Jesus’ second coming.

Wednesday Evenings:

The Story of God's Word - A Chronological Overview of the Bible

Wednesdays, 6:00-7:30 pm, Starts Feb 3rd, Front Room
Have you ever felt as if the Bible was too complex to fully understand? Have you ever wanted to know and be able to tell the whole story of the Bible? The Bible story can be broken down into 14 eras and week by week we will go through each of those eras to understand how they fit together like puzzle pieces to tell the overarching story of the Bible. I will be using materials from Chronological Bible Teaching to guide us on this journey.
Leader: Rich Williams

The Book of James - Becoming Hearers, Believers and Doers

Wednesdays, 6:00-7:30 pm, Starts Feb 3rd, Back Room
In this short and powerful book, James gives us practical guidance on issues that also measure our living faith and spiritual fruitfulness. He encourages us to "be doers of The Word, not hearers only," to "draw near to God," and "to be patient...until the coming of the Lord" (James 1:22, 4:8, 5:7). James calls all believers, then and now, to live a life that demonstrates saving faith marked by godly behavior.
