What is Community Life at 4C’s?
Our hope at 4Cs is to build an environment where Christians of all stages can enter into transformational discipleship.
What is transformational discipleship?
For us it means that we want to see our community live with dedication to growing deeper in the calling of Christ, deeper into His community, and further in His Kingdom mission. Our faith journey is a lifelong process of learning to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
We never “graduate” from the school of Christian living. As we learn to apply and obey Christ’s teachings, our life will increasingly reflect our commitment to Christ. In other words, transformational discipleship is the result of a lifelong process. A real, radical change expressed in both our individual and our community life.
To support Christian growth in individuals and within the church, we believe that there are four essential elements that foster the transforming work of the Spirit:
God’s Word – Shaping our Actions and our lives
Relationships – Community nurturing and encouraging our growth
Obedient Living – Abiding in Christ as we hear his call to witness for his name
Worship – Interacting with and experiencing the presence of God
Community Life Groups
At 4C’s, we believe it is of the utmost importance that each of us has a place to be known and to know others. No matter how long you have been in our community, if you are looking for a point of connection where you can grow personally and spiritually, consider joining a Community Life Group (CLG) this season.
For more information or questions, please contact Nathan Alley, Pastor of Community Growth: Nathan.Alley (a) 4cs.church
Community Life Group Leaders Resources
Small Group Studies: Contact Pastor Nathan if you are interested in any new area’s of study. We have a lot of resources available that our Community Life Groups can use!
Growing as a Small Group Leader: The book Leading Small Groups
with a Purpose is an excellent resource for anyone looking to facilitate a meaninful small groups. Copies of this book are available as a free resource to our Community Life Group leaders. Please connect with Nathan Alley if you would like a copy of this book.
Join us every Tuesday evening, beginning September 12, at 6:30 pm. We will be working through the entire Bible, studying the main story from the Bible, God’s signature plan for redeeming the world through Jesus Christ. Each week we will learn some of the Biblical history, have discussions, and work through the reading at home with a daily Bible reading plan. We will be following the same reading outline as our Youth Ministry! This is a great way for all of our families and community to engage in the same scripture readings.
Permanent Bible Studies and Prayer Opportunities
Prayer Opportunities – If you have prayer needs and would like an elder to pray with you privately, members of 4C’s Council of Elders will be up front near the stage after each service to pray with you on an as-needed basis. We welcome and encourage your participation in taking our needs to the Father. Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” Also, a prayer team meets in the prayer and counseling room, just inside the south entrance between services (from 10:10-10:25) on Sunday mornings, led by Robin Millett.
Pray 396 — Every Wednesday at 6:30 pm in the Worship Center. All are welcome and encouraged to join us.
Prayer Shawls — We invite you to take the time to check out the prayer shawls located in the Family Room by the north entry. If you or someone you know would benefit from having a prayer shawl for encourgement, please take one. We ask that you fill out one of the cards in the black box on the wall which allows us to keep track of and pray for those who have received the shawls. Thanks to everyone who has created these beautiful expressions of God’s covering in difficutl times.
BIBLE STUDIES and ADULT CLASSES
Beginning September 24: Two Upcoming Adult Sunday Classes are all during the 9:00 am service:
‘Your Jesus Journey: Navigating Life with Scripture Reflection’
Cindy Oury will be leading this 10-week personal devotion course for believers, old and new. Scripture reflection is key to spiritual health, allowing Jesus to transform you internally. Then Jesus sends you out to revolutionize your sphere of influence externally! Learn to engage the scriptures and allow the Word to transform your inner life.
‘Sharing the Gospel with Muslims’
Class leaders, Kraig and Susan Meyer, served as missionaries to Turkey for thirty years. Reaching Muslims is still a call for them and it shows through their lives. We can no longer sit back and observe Islam from a distance! Join Kraig in the conversation with this 8-week class. We will learn about Islam, its people, and how the Good News reaches into their hearts. Now is the time to become an effective witness for Christ among the Muslims.
Tuesday Morning Women’s Study –We will begin a RightNow Media study on the book of First Thessalonians on September 26. This study is presented by Pastor Ben Stuart. All who can are invited to join. If you have questions, please contact Clarene Shelley at: C[email protected] or call 303.913.9586.
Thursday Morning Women’s Study – Sensible Shoes – A new women’s book discussion group will be from Thursday, September 28 – November 30, from 9:30-11:00 am in the Fireside Room. The group will read “Sensible Shoes”, written by Sharon Garlough Brown, a pastor and co-founder of Abiding Way Ministries. We will meet to discuss the book content and our responses to it and, through the process, come away with a better understanding of what it means, in each of our separate journeys, to have a relationship with God. We will close the group to newcomers after October 12. Books will be available for $12 each at the September 28th meeting. If you are interested in attending or have further questions, please contact Lynn Callison 303-358-3010 or Betsy Marlatt 720-318-9196.
