As a kid, there was something thrilling about the deep end. Maybe it was the fact that you couldn’t touch or a greater risk of drowning. The shallow end was safe, easy and eventually boring. No one was meant stay in the shallow. This Fall, it’s time to step out of your spiritual comfort zone and into the deep. Step into a deeper, more vibrant relationship with God. Deeper truth, deeper prayer, and deeper intimacy. It will be worth the risk, your effort, and your time.
Will you step into deeper waters? Will you join us?
Choose from 6 different group studies. Each study runs for 5 weeks.
PLEASE CHOOSE ONE STUDY PER PERSON. THE ONE YOU CHOOSE IS THE ONE YOU WILL BE IN
FOR THE WHOLE SERIES.
With RICHARD CURTIS
Genesis may not be the first place we think of in the Bible to find life applications, but that might be simply because we haven’t spent enough time looking there for that reason. Join us for studies of: Creation, Adam & Eve, Abraham, Noah, Jacob, and Joseph.
What were these scriptures saying to the original audience? What might they be saying to our modern church and culture> What might these scriptures say to you?

At Christ Church, Richard has participated in Evangelism Explosion and led Sunday morning Bible studies. His career has been a mix of business and full-time ministry, including 13 years as Corporate Relations Director at World Vision.

The goal of this class is to provide answers to questions about God. Specific topics will be spoken on, but the goal is to help each person understand truth, so that they may have more confidence when communicating truth. The Bible tells us that we must love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. This class is designed to help us love God more with our minds; and, in so doing, give us the tools to help others love God with their minds.
Nathan Glover is the Director of the Urban Impact Training Center in Pittsburgh. He loves to think and write about spiritual and philosophical topics. He studied history, theology and apologetics at Grove City College, Trinity School for Ministry and Oxford University. He has been deeply influenced by the Inklings and his inner-city upbringing. He is husband to a beautiful wife and father to four wonderful kids.
with Pastor Robby Grunwald
In the name of the Father, the Son, and … the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today’s church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Author Francis contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form Chan’s invitation to stop and remember the One we’ve forgotten, the Spirit of the living God. By Francis Chan.
with David Drab
A reliable study by Thaddeus J. Williams that does not lean to left or the right of the political spectrum, but enables us to calibrate our thinking with the truth of scripture on God’s justice. Since the first century, the church has faced challenges. Social Justice appears to be one of the most “epic and age-defining controversies” facing us in the 21st century”. In this study, we will learn and discuss God’s justice in the context of worship, community, salvation, and knowledge.
Dave and his wife Leah of 52 years are native Pittsburgher’s who returned to the city after nearly 40 years in the wilderness. They have three children and five grandchildren in three adjoining states. They have been members of Christ Church at Grove Farm since 2010. Over the years, Dave has served in church leadership, education, and outreach ministries to crime victims, criminal offenders, officers of the former Soviet Union, the elderly and hospice. Dave was a law enforcement professional––serving as a police officer and FBI Special Agent spending most of his career battling the American Mafia – La Cosa Nostra. With retirement, Dave’s interest and focus shifted from criminal justice to biblical justice––out of an awareness that some social justice movements of our day have crossed the line. As followers of Christ, we must be better equipped to discern the difference between what is true justice and what is not.
