Wanting to get to know Jesus Christ

Let us introduce you to Jesus Christ through what people who knew him tell us about him in the Gospel written by the historian and doctor Luke.

This program is designed to help you understand the basics of becoming a Christ follower so that you will be comfortable in participating in the parish wide Growth Group program.

Phase 1- Simply Christianity

Simply Christianity is a short six week course that allows participants to explore who Jesus is, in a relaxed and friendly environment. It deals with many of the intellectual questions that arise in discussions on the Christian Faith. The course is offered at various times throughout the year, and is conducted either in a small group environment or on a one-on-one basis as needed.

Participants in Simply Christianity are supplied with a guest manual, a short and readable book, which guides them through reading the book of Luke (which is one of the four books of the bible that records details of Jesus’ life). The manual also contains background information and a commentary by historian John Dickson.

The course involves six sessions:

Session 1 – Jesus, Now and Then

Session 2 – In the Presence of Greatness: The Gospel of Luke, Chapters 1 – 9

Session 3 – Search and Rescue: The Gospel of Luke, Chapters 10 – 19

Session 4 – Jesus’ Death: The Gospel of Luke, Chapters 20 – 23

Session 5 – Jesus, Here and Now: The Gospel of Luke, Chapter 24

Session 6 – Simply Christianity Break-up

Phase 2- Back to Basics

Back to Basics is a short series of bible studies, that help new Christians (or longer term ones who want a refresher!) to understand what is means to follow Jesus. By looking at key passages in the Bible, it not only helps participants learn how to use their bibles, but also give them an introduction to the basics of the Christian faith. It is an ideal follow up to Simply Christianity.

The course covers:

1. What it means to be Saved by God

2. What it means to Trust in God

3. What is means to Live God’s Way

4. How we Listen to God

5. How we Talk to God

6. Why we Meet with God’s Family

7. What it means to Meet the World as a Christian
