ADULT MINISTRY

MEN'S MINISTRY

At Journey of Faith Bellflower, we strive to biblically train and equip men to be spiritual leaders in their homes, in the church, and in their places of business. God has not only entrusted men with great responsibility but also with great authority. The positive impact men will have for the Kingdom of God will not come through an abuse of their power, but a proper, humble exercise of love and service. We accomplish this mission through Bible study, prayer, discipleship classes, evangelism training, leadership development, accountability (Life) groups, mentoring, and mission trips. It is our prayer that all husbands, all fathers, all men, will fight diligently to honor God with their hearts and lives.

WOMEN'S MINISTRY

Our Women's Ministry endeavors to unite women of various ages and diverse cultural backgrounds for service in God's Kingdom. We strive to create an atmosphere through Bible study, worship, retreats and service projects, that will inspire women to love God, love themselves and to love one another. Our fellowship with one another allows us to strengthen each other with testimonies of God's faithfulness and love. It is our desire that all those in our ministry will become strong, effective and virtuous women of God through the application of Biblical principles, thus impacting in their home, church and community for the cause of Christ.

Our Women's Bible Study meets every Thursday from 9:30-11:15am (September - May)

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL

Our Adult Sunday School class meets on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15 am.  Our regular teacher is Ken Granville. We rotate through both topical studies (i.e., community, spiritual gifts, fruit of the Spirit, etc.) and expository studies in various books of the Bible (i.e., Isaiah, Colossians, Romans, etc).  We study in an open atmosphere employing Socratic, question and answer, dialogue. Class participation is encouraged as we feel it adds to the collective growth of knowledge and wisdom in the group.

All adults are welcome to come study, share, and pray together as we consider how we "may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." (Hebrews 10:24)

LIfe Groups

What are Life Groups?
Life Groups are small gatherings of people who meet on various days and times throughout the week. Groups meet in a wide range of locations. Some of the more common places are homes, apartments or coffee shops. Life Groups are made up of people who are interested in knowing more about Jesus Christ, want to grow spiritually and connect with others who are going in the same direction.

What do Life Groups do?
 Life Groups are meant to supplement Sunday church by focusing on deeper relationships, application from Sunday's sermon and prayer for one another.
Many people who attend church struggle to be known and know others. Some of this is because of the usual format of a church service. During the majority of a service, one's focus and attention is up front for worship and teaching. It is rarely on the people sitting around you. Life Groups allow for focused time where people get to comfortably hang out with people, share life and support one another through prayer!
Another common struggle for the church today is that we are educated in the Bible beyond our obedience. We hear many sermons over our life, but struggle to have the truth take root in us. In Life Groups we typically do not have a new independent Bible study, but instead focus on application based questions from Sundays sermon. This allows for an opportunity to not just hear the Word, but to "do what it says." (James 1:22)

Who can be in a Life Group?
Anyone who has a desire to know more about Jesus Christ and the Bible can be in a Life Group. Life Groups are made up of Christians and sometimes people who are not Christian but are interested in knowing more about the faith.

How do I join a Life Group?
There are two options for joining a Life Group.

First: You can contact the church and we will provide a list of Life Groups currently meeting in your area.

Second: You can start your own Life Group in your area. We will provide you with all the needed resources and training. Many people have started a group with local family, relatives, friends, or co-workers. We also encourage people to use Life Groups as an outreach to family or friends who don't know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
