Living Like Jesus Community Groups

August 24th - November 12th, 2017

The Song of Solomon offers strikingly candid—and timeless—insights on romance, dating, marriage, and sex. Today we are inundated with songs, movies, and advice that contradicts God’s design for love and intimacy. In this 12-week series, Matt Chandler will help you dive deeper into the word of God and offer eternal, counter-intuitive perspectives on physical attraction, dating vs. courtship, navigating the ups and downs of marriage, the importance and beauty of sex, and how to fight fair.

Fusion Small Groups 2017/2018

Fusion exists to help 6th-8th grade students “fuse” their faith in Jesus with everyday life. Every Sunday evening, our students have the chance to create meaningful relationships with intentional volunteers and staff, hang out with friends, engage in powerful times of worship, and learn about God’s Word. Our mission is to help each student learn what it means to "think, love and live like Jesus."

You are invited to come and be a part of this community of students that meets on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30 PM during the 2017/2018 school year.

Tuesday Evening Bible Study 2017-2018

September 19th - April 24th, 2018

$25 - $35

Tuesdays | Sept. 19 - Apr. 24 | 6:30 - 8:30 PM

(Holiday break after Nov. 14, resuming Jan. 9) We begin each night with a group dinner ($3/pp)

Option 1:

Fall Study-Community: Living Like Jesus

It’s all about Jesus. As followers of Christ, we know that everything we need to live abundantly and purposefully is demonstrated for us in the life of Jesus Christ. In this unique study, we’ll look at snapshots from Jesus’ life—unpacking them so that we can know how he thought, how he loved people radically, and how he lived every day...breaking down barriers so that all might come to know Him. Study directly corresponds with this fall’s Sunday morning teaching.

Winter Study-Entrusted | A Study of 2 Timothy (Beth Moore)

We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.

Option 2:

Bible for Beginners

This group is for women who are either new to the Bible or new to church. In the Fall we'll be participating in the Community Study from Option 1, then in the Winter, we'll go through the Book of Luke and discuss at a beginning level as well as learn how to navigate through the Bible. Come with your questions, and let’s enjoy discovering God’s truth among friends in a non-intimidating, comfortable, small group setting.

Option 3:

Digging Deeper - Hear God Speak to you From His Word

This is an inductive verse by verse Bible study that includes a Study Guide and can be enjoyed by those who know the Bible well as well as those who have never been in a Bible study before.

Fall Study: Genesis 10-20 The joy of Bible study is to know God better and to understand how to please Him by faith. These are some of the stories we will study in Genesis: The Tower of Babel, God’s call of Abraham, God’s promises and covenants and the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah. Join us and let’s study Genesis together!

Winter Study: John 11-21 The goal of Bible study is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a transformed life. What better way to know God and learn what His will is than to study the words and works of Jesus in in the Book of John? John was a devoted follower of Jesus so he will give us a personal and powerful look at the eternal Son of God.

Winter Study:

Option 1: Discerning the Voice of God (Priscilla Shirer)

Through the sessions, discover the root to clear and daily communication with God—humble obedience. Join one of our small groups as we learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.

Option 2: Real Life Discipleship

This training will guide us through the necessary components of disciple-making. It is one of the tools that we can use to help others grow-up in their relationship with Jesus. This manual will help participants develop the heart of a discipler by learning what a disciple is, how disciples grow and how to be an intentional disciple maker. Each week we’ll focus on practical teaching, discussion and hands on application which will transform us from a discussion on discipleship to actually “doing” discipleship.

Family dedication 2016 event banner

Family Dedication | November 5, 2017

November 5th, 2017

WHAT IS FAMILY DEDICATION? In Deuteronomy 6, it is very clear that God expects and desires parents to raise and influence their children to love the Lord in every part of their lives. To that end, we at Rolling Hills want to help facilitate and value every family making disciples of their family members. One way we have tried to uphold this important value is by providing opportunities to do family dedications. A Family Dedication is a ceremony where the parents make a public declaration to raise their children to live lives of faith in God through the truth of the Bible and ask for the members of the church to support them in that endeavor. It is not a ceremony that saves your children, but a parental decision to influence, train and equip your children to one day choose to follow Jesus for themselves. Family Dedication ceremonies typically happen three to four times a year during our Sunday Gatherings. We also would encourage you to dedicate your child in a more personal, intimate setting, if you prefer. It is not required to dedicate your children in front of everyone at a weekend church gathering. Sharing this special occasion with your Community Group or immediate family and friends is equally impactful, and can open the opportunity for out-of-town family and friends to share this commitment with you.

WHO MAY DEDICATE A CHILD? Any follower of Jesus who is making the choice to commit their life to modeling the ways of Jesus as revealed in the Bible to their child, or children, is welcome. If you are the only parent who is a Christ follower, or similarly, if you are a single parent, we welcome you to be part of a Family Dedication ceremony.

WHAT IS REQUIRED? The primary requirement is that you, as parent/parents, have made a choice to follow Jesus by faith. If you haven’t made this decision yourself, please contact us so we can explain how to invite Jesus into your life and take the next steps to grow in your newfound faith. We would also ask that you consider Rolling Hills your church home if you are going to dedicate your child/children here. If you consider Rolling Hills your church home and have not yet become a member, we encourage you to attend RH Engage at your earliest convenience.

DOES ROLLING HILLS BAPTIZE INFANTS? We do not baptize babies at Rolling Hills Community Church. Although infants and very young children belong to God (2 Samuel 12:23), they do not have the capacity to repent and believe in Jesus Christ. The dedication of a child does not ensure a child’s salvation, but is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your desire and willingness to teach your child the truths of God’s Word. We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is only for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The act of baptism is a step of obedience in following Jesus’ example and will follow a personal faith decision (Acts 2:41). In addition, Rolling Hills offers Baptism Orientation Classes for elementary kids through adults. For more info on this baptism, go to the Baptism information page on our website.

DOES DEDICATION GIVE MY CHILD ETERNAL LIFE OR SPECIAL FAVOR WITH GOD? No. However, it is the best and wisest way to set up your children for success in following Jesus as they grow up into maturity. There is nothing mystical or powerful in the act of dedication itself. Dedication does not merit favor with God or earn your child eternal life. As the Apostle Paul said, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV)

Community Group Basics Experience | Nov 12, 2017

November 12th, 2017

What is the CG Basics Experience? CG Basics Experience is designed not to be another class, but instead an actual experience--where you can become familiar with the actual happenings of a real Community Group. You will hear about and participate in each segment of the experience as well as walk away with a better understanding of what CG life is like, what it involves, and more.

What can I expect when I come? We will start with a light meal. After that we will walk through each element of a Community Group (discussion and questions are encouraged). This is not a "normal class." You will have the opportunity to participate throughout.

Are children welcome? Yes, children are welcome! We will all begin together with sharing a meal. Then we will split off with parents staying and children going with a certified childcare worker to a classroom.

We’re very excited about this opportunity to help expose more of our families and individuals here at Rolling Hills to Community Group life. We highly recommend you attend!
