VENTURE MINISTRY

GateWay's Ministry for Adults 55+ | Thursdays 10:00am-11:00am

Venture is a great place to gather with friends (and meet new friends) to learn, enjoy fellowship, and grow together in the Lord.

To encourage and build up one another, opportunities are offered that minister to the whole person.  A great example of a person walking with God in the second half of his life, was Caleb (Num 14, Josh 14).  He was one of the twelve spies.  We use the acrostic:  S.P.I.E.S:
Spiritually
Physically
Intellectually
Emotionally
Socially
We work to provide opportunities in each of these areas.  Each quarter or series of classes will vary.

Venture Summer Program

We are excited to kickoff our Summer and resume back to “normal” after a challenging year. You are invited to join in on Thursday mornings. We will be meeting in the Main Auditorium at 10 AM, then later break out into new classes.

We will kick off our summer with a special day. We will gather in the Main Auditorium for a time of worship, led by our worship team. We’ll have some updates and fellowship. We will then breakout into your choice of three new 6-week classes (June 3 to July 8), starting that day. (see below)

We will end the morning with lunch from Corner Bakery at 11:30am in the Gathering Place. There are choices of sandwiches. We need to pre-order, so please purchase ahead at Venture or in the church office for $10 each.

"Job and Ecclesiastes"

LifeWay Bible Study Series
Led by Linda Shockley
“Job” is set in the time of the patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph), and tells the story of a man who in his great losses, wrestles with the question, “why?” Why do the righteous suffer if God is loving and all-powerful? In “Ecclesiastes” King Solomon, with all his wealth, power, women, and influence, seeks to fill the void in his life and find meaning. Is the answer in power, position, pleasure, accomplishment, or wealth? In his quest for answers, what does he find?

"A Foundation of Faith"

Led by Bill Yoshimoto
How Firm Is Your Foundation? Are you built on sand or “The Rock?” Whether you are a new or veteran Christ-follower this six-week journey will get you on the path of being a disciple and a disciple-maker. Come and see the transformational essential truths of Jesus Christ. Each week will cover a different aspect of relationship with Jesus Christ and the impact on our daily lives.

"Prophets and Kings"

Led by Steve Hopper
The Old Testament period of the Divided Kingdom was a time when many of God’s people did not follow Him. By His grace, God raised up godly prophets like Elijah, and Elisha, and good kings like Hezekiah, Josiah, and others. These studies include momentous battles, amazing miracles, and exciting characters. We will we dig in to 1 & 2 Kings, a portion of the Bible that is not often explored. Join us as we discover what the Lord has for us.
