Young people desire community. They join sports teams, clubs, and social networking and form friendships based on common interests. At Activate, we want students to be in community with one another based on the greatest of interests: knowing God and making Him known. Every Wednesday before Bible study, students meet in Community Groups from 6:15P.M. to 6:45 P.M. for the purpose of discipleship, fellowship, and accountability. Each group is gender-specific and is led by a college-aged counselor. These groups provide a great environment to develop and deepen godly friendships.
In order to take advantage of the free time that the summer season offers, the High School Community Groups will read through a book as a ministry! We will be going through The Cross Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel the Main Thing by C.J. Mahaney. This is a great resource that will help us stay rooted in the gospel and live in light of Christ’s love and grace. By reading this book, we are praying that students would imitate Paul by saying, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2). There will be a reading schedule that will consist of 1 chapter a week, and we will discuss the topics in our groups. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to have lots of fun and fellowship with friends this summer! Sign-up for a group at any of our services, or contact us!
Below is our reading schedule. We’ll discuss one chapter each week:
July 3: Chapter 1 – Restating the Obvious
July 10: Chapter 2 – What’s Your Life Centered On?
July 17: Chapter 3 – Breaking the Rules of Legalism
July 24: Chapter 4 – Unloading Condemnation

August 14: Chapter 7 – Never Move On
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:23-24).
