      Sunday 10/13/19  – CHAPTER 1


    I Corinthians

    2 To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy,

    •     Does the church today, even the church of the Treasure Valley reflect the call of this verse?

    3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    •     Would you describe how GRACE has impacted your life?
    •     What attacks your PEACE?  
    •     How is God greater than what attacks your peace?

    8 He will keep you strong to the end 9 God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

    •     In your relationship with the Father, how does He make you strong?
    •     What is the most empowering thing about your fellowship with Jesus?
    •     Why does it matter that God is Faithful?
    • 10 I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ  that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11 My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you.
    •    Do you see unity or disunity in the church?
    •    How could unity be strengthened?
    • Allegiance to a person should NEVER be mentioned in the context of following Christ!
    •   Have you seen this out of balance in Christians?

    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 

    Romans 1:16-17  16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 

    17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

    •   Discuss the power of God to save!
    •    According to the verse 17 above, what produces righteousness?
    •   Do you view yourself as righteous?  Why or Why not?

Doing Life Together

Life Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one-another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through men's/women's groups, home gatherings, and other personal settings.

Big Church

Small Community

We have been created to live in community and not in isolation. Physically, we do live in a community, but spiritually, socially, and relationally we often live our lives in isolation. We find ourselves with no one to turn to when we have a major issue that has just surfaced in our life. Living in community affords us the opportunity to more wholly experience God through close relationships as we play and pray together, as we encourage and help one another, and as we study and live out God’s word together.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”

John 4:7-8

Missional Communities

We believe the church is the family of God called to live on mission to advance His Kingdom. Because we are God's children through Jesus, we are to live as brothers and sisters. The church is not a building, place, or program, but God's people.

Living in community with one another is essential to growing in the Gospel and becoming more like Christ. Showing up to a Sunday gathering is great, but it is our desire to see everyone involved in a Missional Community. A Missional Community is not a mid-week program, but a family of missionary servants who are making disciple-making disciples daily. We would love to see all of our Missional Communities hanging out throughout the week, eating meals together and serving their neighborhoods. It is not something you check off a list, but a way of doing life.

Currently, we have seven Missional Communities and are multiplying continually. 

If you’re interested in being a part of a Missional Community in your area, please email us and we will connect you.
