Learning communities are intended to strengthen your biblical knowledge, character and/or practical ministry skills. They are also an opportunity to get to know others at Bay Area on Sunday mornings in an environment of learning and interaction. Scroll down to view our current Learning Community opportunities.

A message from Pat Linnell on Learning Communities —

If you are like me, Jesus is not just the way we start a Sunday morning, but the way that we start every day – and live every day. He is the Author, Creator, and Sustainer of life. He is alive and well, seated in power, and involved in our everyday lives. He is all together helpful and has served us exceedingly well. The closer we live connected with Jesus, the closer our lives are aligned with our purpose and filled with joy. We get to know and walk with this Jesus, and that friends, is a gift.

One of the primary ways we get to know Jesus better is to know the Bible better. The Bible is not just an old crusty religious book of rules. Rather it is God’s inspired Word about Jesus that guides us to true and eternal life. Sure, it is a thick book that seems daunting, but it is for everyone, and we all can have an accurate grasp on its message. I believe that time spent learning and applying the bible in a community of people trying to do the same ultimately will lead to spiritual growth.

This year on Sunday mornings, in smaller groups of people, we will be offering many different Learning Communities to help us learn, apply, and live out the Bible. These courses will make up 3 main emphasis of learning: Head, Heart, and Hands. These different tracks help us not only develop theologically, but also in our character, and practical life.

If you do not pray with him or her, if you did and stopped, or if you do so intermittently, this LC is for you. This three-week LC designed to create space and time for communicating with the Lord in your marriage, as husbands and wives, and joined as one before our Heavenly Father.
