Our foundational scripture:
II Timothy 3:16&17
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The Adult Discipleship Team oversees Training Ground, Bible Studies, and other opportunities for spiritual growth for the adult population of Greenview Alliance Church. Several years ago, we changed the name of Sunday School to Training Ground to better represent the idea that God’s people should be in training – studying God’s Word, encouraging each other in the faith, and growing together so we are equipped and ready for the good works God has planned for us to do. Classes and studies for Training Ground are prayerfully considered by the team to best meet the needs and foster spiritual growth of our church family. Although the Men’s and Women’s Ministries of Greenview are run by their own leadership, they fall under the oversight of the Adult Discipleship Team.
Training Ground-Sunday Morning starting at 9:15am is offering the following opportunities:
Explore the Bible: Esther and Nehemiah
Two studies in one semester –
Esther Group Bible Study Book is a study that tells the story of Esther, a woman who was used of God to stand against unholy people to preserve the Jewish people and their culture and tradition.
Esther, who was a Jew, was also the queen of Persian King Ahasuerus. She used her influence at just the right time to save her people from annihilation when evil Haman sought to destroy the Jews of the land. Without the heroic acts of Esther, the Jewish nation and their religion may have ceased to exist.
Nehemiah Group Bible Study: Nehemiah, a man who was used by God in perilous times, reveals the incredible power of a single individual. Nehemiah was the cupbearer to a Persian king who sought permission to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the wall, encircling the city.
Nehemiah, written much like a journal, records a remarkable story of Jewish history: the restoration of the walls around Jerusalem that provide the protection of the holy city. Without the heroic acts of Nehemiah, the city of Jerusalem would have been in danger and the Jewish nation and their religion may have ceased. God used individuals in perilous times to stand against unholy people to preserve the Jewish people and their culture and tradition.
Difficult situations require godly leadership. Nehemiah did more than lead a construction project; he led the people to correct injustices, to return to worship, and to spiritual revival. Nehemiah is an example to believers that God’s people have to leave places of comfort to be used by God to accomplish His purpose.
The Gospel Project
The Gospel Project takes men and women on a chronological, Christ-centered journey through the storyline of Scripture. Each week, participants will encounter God’s plan of redemption in Scripture through the study of Bible narrative, the essential doctrines of the faith, and the call to join in God’s mission locally and around the world. This fall, The Gospel Project starts a new three-year cycle, beginning at the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth. This study covers the fall of man, the story of Abraham, and God’s plan to bless the whole world through one broken family. From this family would come the One to restore the goodness of creation and provide for the salvation of the world.
Christ in the Psalms-First and Third Thursday of the month at 10:00am, in the Greenview library
Currently, we are offering a Bible study which meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 10:00 A.M. at Greenview Alliance Church. The study is called Christ in the Psalms and is a study that focuses on the psalms that predict Christ – His coming, His work, His lordship, and His reign as King of Kings. The study is led by Sharon DiStasi and has no defined end date but will probably run through February of 2019.
