Fall Life Groups
 
Life Groups are where we do life together here at Branch Church. We meet together in the RELAXED ATMOSPHERE of a home, and share in each other’s struggles and celebrations. We HANG OUT together, SUPPORT EACH OTHER, PRAY for and ENCOURAGE one another while we learn more about what God wants for our lives. Whether you are a long-time Christ follower, or if you are just trying to figure it all out, a LG is a place to come TOGETHER and help each other take the NEXT STEP in our spiritual journey as well as within the COMMUNITY. This semester’s LG’s will consist of a Men’s, Women’s, Mix, Couples and Student’s groups.
Men’s – My Manhood Plan (5 weeks)
 
The world needs men to be men by showing themselves to be Godly men! Not by the world’s standards as we are warned in Romans 12:2, but by God’s standards. Biblical manhood is a matter of the heart, and is manifested and matured by a commitment and obedience to the Word of God.

The Manhood Plan is divided into five different steps. The five steps have a series of questions that are designed to drill into specific parts of your life getting you to focus on your walk with Christ and being a Man of God.

Women’s – The Armor of God (6 weeks)
 
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.

But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

Wednesday Mix – Goliath Must Fall (6 weeks)

It’s likely you have a threatening giant in your life . . . an adversary or stronghold that’s diminishing your ability to live a full and free life.

God has a better plan for you—a plan for you to live in victory. That’s why he has silenced your giant once and for all.
