Christianity Explored

Sundays , 11:15am, Room 323
This is a newly forming eight-week IG will study the gospel of Mark as a way to explore the identity, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus.  The study will also gives us time to think about the big questions of life and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  This Ignition Group will be especially helpful for those seeking to gain a solid understanding of the gospel message and how we are respond to it.  Come discuss the good news!

The Transplants

Sundays beginning April 13th, 9:45am, Room 142
We are a new Ignition Group for anyone in their 50’s and 60’s. The group will provide in-depth Bible study and spiritual support for those looking for a small group community. The group will launch with a seven-week study on the book of Colossians. Along the way we will also share biblical and practical guidance on the issues we experience in this stage of life, such as transition into new careers or retirement, becoming an empty nester, etc. Whether you’ve been coming to Columbia for many years or just a few weeks, we welcome you to our new IG!


Dig Deeper Series

Wednesdays beginning April 23, 6:30pm, Room 301 The Dig Deeper series is a collection of six to eight week studies occurring throughout the year intended to provide Columbians the opportunity to study topics that would not normally be covered in a Sunday morning Ignition Group.  The series will begin with an eight week study on Church History taught by Pastor Eric Reiser and Richard Goddard. Future study topics will also help give people a broad understanding of the Bible, the Church and how to live as a Christian in the world today. This IG series is designed to challenge people who are already familiar with Scripture.  Come join us!
