Project 78 Ignition Groups
Sundays at 9:45 & 11:15am, and Wednesdays at 9:30am


This past September Columbia launched our new all-ages Project 78 material, LifeWay's The Gospel Project. Join other Columbians in this three-year journey through the storyline of Scripture. Each week you will encounter God’s plan of redemption and hear the call to join in God’s mission locally and around the world.  For December 2015 through February 2016, we will encounter the God of the Exodus who delivered his people out of slavery and gave them his law. View a complete list of our Project 78 Ignition Groups.

You can gain a deeper understanding of the Bible storyline by reading through the Bible over the three years of the Project 78 material. The reading plan requires no more than seven chapters of Scripture per week and tracks with the weekly Project 78 lessons. There will also be periodic get-togethers for people to encourage each other and share their experience of reading through the Bible. Contact: Eric Reiser.

OTHER IGNITION GROUPS...

Sermon Connection IG Sundays beginning September 13, 11:15am, room 302
This sermon-based Bible study gives young couples the opportunity to respond to the sermon, further explore the Biblical text and consider the implications on our lives.  Our Ignition Group is part of the Young Couples Community, which provides couples in their 20s and 30s with a space where they feel cared for, can grow spiritually and have the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships.  The Young Couples Community meets in room 309 for a short gathering time, and then our IG moves to room 302. Contact: Brian & Natalie Kent.

Dig Deeper IG:  The Baptist Way of Being Church
Wednesdays, 6:30pm, room 323

We will be looking at how the baptist (congregational) approach provides a unified vision for what it means to be a church and how that vision guides our internal practices (such as baptism, communion, church membership, and church governance) and our engagement with the broader culture.  As the baptist way is contrasted against the hierarchical approach used by the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, and Presbyterian churches, this study is quite helpful if you came from or know people from these different denominational backgrounds.  Contact:  Eric Reiser or Alicia Hoefke.

A Threefold Cord IG
Sundays, 9:45am, room 308

Our IG for couples in their 20s and 30s is now studying the Bible through a sermon-based format! This sermon-based study gives young couples the opportunity to respond to the sermon, further explore the Biblical text, and consider the implications on our lives.  Contact: Debbie Baucom.

Faith, Family & Friends IG
Saturdays, 7:15pm, room 229
This Ignition Group is part of the 11:15 Young Couples Department.  Simplified living requires more than just cleaning out your closets or reorganizing your desk drawer. It requires uncluttering your soul. In Simplify, bestselling author Bill Hybels identifies the core issues that lure us into frenetic living―and offers practical steps for sweeping the clutter from our souls. Contact:  Jason Small.

Saturday night IG
Saturdays, 7:15pm, room 229

This Ignition Group is for anyone looking for an IG after the Saturday night worship service.  Starting in January, we will be reading through The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  This classic book is a compelling statement about the demand for sacrifice and ethical consistency for all who call themselves followers of Jesus.  Contact: Neil Eckard
