Church-Wide Study

r coContrarians Guide to Knowing God

Our church’s plan for 2019/20 is for all of us to spend a year drawing closer to God individually and in community. One of the ways we will do this is by studying together. Between October 13 and November 23, we will look at the book A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God, by Larry Osborne.

Each Sunday, Pastor Ryan will introduce the topic to be studied that week. During the week, there will be a variety of ways for people to engage with it.

  • Larry Osborne’s video of the series is available on Right Now Media, a video-streaming site for Bible studies. Our church has a subscription. If you are associated with our church and you don’t have access, contact us and we will send you an invitation.
  • A limited number of books will be available to purchase through the church. You can also buy the book online in print or e-book format.
  • There will be various study groups meeting during the week at the church:
    • Tuesday Men’s Group in the library from 12:10 to 1:00 pm
    • Tuesday Evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 pm
    • Wednesday Evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm
    • Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15  (both general and College & Career)

Please sign up at the back of the sanctuary or contact the office to register for the Tuesday or Wednesday sessions. You can just show up for the others. Note that the Sunday groups will study the topic that Pastor Ryan introduced the previous Sunday.

The study will go for 5 weeks, not including the week of November 10 to 16. On November 23, we will have a church-wide gathering (including food!) to celebrate the completion of the study and the start of the Christmas season.
