Growth Pathways

Community GrOups The Lifeblood of TFC!

Leader: Christian Turner

Purpose

The purpose of Community Groups (CG) is to help the people of The Field Church to pursue biblical community and friendship by practicing the “One-Anothers” of Scripture as they share the gospel together. ]

Function

Community Groups meet year-round on a 2 months on / 1 month off rhythm (August-September, November-December, February-March, May-June). Within the 2-month “on” period, groups share life together through weekly gatherings in the homes of church members, and practicing the One-Anothers. Groups will meet on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm. CGs can plan their own times for doing life together outside of just “on” months.

Treasure Hunt will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 6:15-8:15pm for the first 3 weeks of each month that Community Groups meet (a total of 6 weeks/12 sessions each CG cycle). No Treasure Hunt will take place on the last week of each month of CG, and CGs are encouraged to gather with their children for family discipleship and fellowship.

New sign-ups for Community Groups, applications for CG Leaders, and the formation of new groups will occur during the “off” months (October, January, April, July). Everyone who wants to join a CG for the first time will fill out the brief “Community Group Sign-Up” form on the Growth Pathways page of our website. Those interested in leading a group will apply using the “CG Leader Application” on the Growth Pathways page of our website. All responses will be received by Christian Turner, who is responsible for the facilitation and formation of CG. 

All new participants in a CG, as well as newly formed groups, will attend GroupConnect – a 4-week workshop to learn about and encourage true, biblical community. All members of a new group will attend together with their leaders. GroupConnect will be held during the first 4 weeks of each CG cycle on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm. For more information, please see the GroupConnect info sheet, or the Growth Pathways page of our website. 

The Field Institute Biblical literacy at TFC!

Leaders: Sam & Kasey Cirrincione

To develop and deepen disciples in biblical literacy, theological frameworks, and God’s redemptive story in order to help them see and know God more fully and walk with Him more closely. 

Function

The Field Institute will offer two 8-week courses throughout to calendar year, one in March-April and one in September-October. One course will be Systematic Theology, and the the other course will be an overview of all 66 books of the Bible, including understanding the theme and thesis, and how the book fits into redemptive history. Both classes will be co-ed and will have a limited sign-up of 15 people per class. Childcare will be made available if there is an explicit need expressed upon registration. We will provide the material for the class and participants will pay a fee to cover the cost of materials. 

Classes will be held in the sanctuary on Monday evenings from 6-8pm. Registration for both courses will open 2 months in advance and close 2 weeks out to provide time to order materials and facilitate child-care as needed for the course.

Growth Discipleship functions more organically, but will have structured times of training. There will be regular Multiplication Seminars (co-ed, emphasis on learning to share your faith effectively/lifestyle evangelism) and Discipleship Training (men’s and women’s, walking through a Bible study/discipleship tool). Growth Discipleship also encompasses discipleship coordination, facilitating Bible studies and creating new material for Christian growth, support of “disciplers,” and opportunities for observation.
