9:00 – 10:00 AM
2013 Adult Formation Series
We at Northlake believe deeply that “God transforms us as we worship, learn the way of Jesus, and serve the world.” Join us in 2013 as we seek “The Jesus Way.”
“Whoever claims to live in Him, must walk as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:6
The preaching series will lead us from Advent to Easter – from a refugee baby to resurrected Lord! We’ll look at His unique way of life, the reasons he put on flesh to walk among us, and the life-changing teachings from His ministry.
Adult Formation classes will enrich the worship series. Please join one of these classes:
~ Prime Timers – The Chapel – “Friendship, the Jesus Way”, led by Pat Graham.
~ Koinonia – The Forum – A discussion of Red Letter Revolution (Claiborne & Campolo), led by Neal Stubblefield and Stewart Smith.
~ Spanish Bible Study – Room 202 – A study of each week’s sermon text in Spanish.
~ Threshold – Room 203 – A conversation in English about the sermon text crafted especially for our English Language Learners, led by Brandon Marlow.
~ Connections - Room 205 – A discussion-based experience of each week’s sermon text, led by Ike Reeser and Jim Neal.
~ Living Room Class – Discussion based on a selected book (to be announced), led by Gary Crane.
~ Spiritual Formation L.A.B.S 02 (Ongoing)- “Cultivating Authentic Relationship”, led by Joyce Tomblin in Room 204.

Practicing the Art of Community
LIFE Groups – Sundays, 6:00-7:00pm
In today’s disjointed culture, it’s more important than ever that God’s people learn to live in community. All of us who seek to follow Jesus are looking for places where we can be loved, nurtured, accepted and encouraged by fellow believers. God has created us to live in community.
In 2013 we invite you to commit to a LIFE Group—a small group of Christians dedicating themselves to learning the ways of Jesus and reflecting these practices in their daily lives. Brenda Salter McNeil’s book A Credible Witness guides the winter/spring LIFE Group journey to Jesus and His Gospel of reconciliation.
Contact Ike Reeser for more information at email@example.com or 770-414-0375, ext. 12.
7:00 – 8:00 PM
The work week can be hectic, and that’s one reason why we like to pause in the middle of it and spend an hour together in study, prayer, and worship. All of our Wednesday night classes meet on Northlake’s campus, and we offer a variety of options, from book studies to children and youth activities, to informal Bible discussion groups.
Below is a list of our current adult, Wednesday evening classes. Contact Shawn Duncan if you have any questions or would like more information on any class.
Book Discussion Group (upstairs in “The Parlor”)
What does C.S. Lewis call “joy”? How does his concept compare with yours? Join the Wednesday Night Book Discussion Group beginning September 5th to read and discuss Lewis’ Surprise by Joy. Books have been ordered, so see Faye Hardiman or Ralph McCluggage if you’re interested. All are invited to meet with us!
Women’s Bible Reading Group (Room 203)
All adult women are invited to this group of ladies who spend Wednesdays reading and discussing the sermon text for the following Sunday. With an emphasis on transformation, the time is spent reflecting on scripture and the meaning it has for our lives.
Men’s Bible Reading Group (The Forum)
All adult men are welcome to this informal group that gather downstairs in the Forum. Similar to the Women’s Bible Reading Group, the men discuss the Biblical text and theme for worship the following Sunday.
Women’s Share Group (Living Room)
Opening with a brief devotional, this class offers a time to share personal struggles or victories. The group provides support, encouragement, and prayer for each other in a confidential environment.
Midweek at the Chapel
All adults are invited to Midweek at the Chapel for a time of worship, prayer, and study. Led by Carson Reed, the text for the upcoming Sunday worship guides the discussion, making this a great time to hear from Carson’s notes as he prepares for Sunday’s sermon.
NEW TESTAMENT GRΣΣK FOR DUMMIES: How the Greek Language Shapes Our Understanding of the New Testament And you thought ancient Greek was only a language for scholars? Think again. Every serious Bible student should know a little Greek… at least enough to be dangerous! Beginning Wednesday, September 5th this general-interest class geared toward the layperson will attempt to unlock some of the mysteries of the Greek language and delve deeper in our understanding of the first-century documents that compose the New Testament. Don’t be frightened… this is a class for everyone!
