Bible Study

While we endured the various quarantine recommendations over the past year, many churches have had to examine how we do things. Willow Creek Friends is no different.

We are currently Meeting for Worship on Sunday mornings, and we have started our Sunday morning Bible studies as well. But we have not reopened our mid-week studies.

There is a reason for this. The number one reason is kind of selfish. I as a pastor was enjoying the extra time with my family and when the various mandates were lifted, I was not quick to start the mid-week Meeting until after the school’s summer break was completed.

The second reason is because how will we meet and what will we do? We have the unique opportunity to relaunch our discipleship offerings. I encourage anyone that is reading this post to click on the rightnow media page and sign up for that service. I have been in conversation with this organization and anyone that participates with Willow Creek ministry has permission to get access to this service.

Why do I say get access, because we can now use the rightnow media platform to do virtual groups studies. Meaning when we meet during the week, here in Kansas City, you can meet with us. This is not the same as meeting together for Worship and fellowship, but it is still good. And gives the readers of this blog an opportunity to meet and study with the people of the Meeting (church).

If you are interested in participating, go ahead and get the log in for the rightnow media site. And send me an email (pastor@jwquaker.com) so I can send you the link for the study. Which I hope will begin in September.

If you happen to live in outside the United States, you should still be able to participate! Let me know if you are interested and hopefully we can set up a virtual group that will work in your time zone.

Thank you all for reading my post over the past few years. And I am excited for where God might lead us in the future.

About jwquaker

I’m sure everyone wants to know who I am…well if you are viewing this page you do. I’m Jared Warner and I am a pastor or minister recorded in the Evangelical Friends Church Mid America Yearly Meeting. To give a short introduction to the EFC-MA, it is a group of evangelical minded Friends in the Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado. We are also a part of the larger group called Evangelical Friends International, which as the name implies is an international group of Evangelical Friends. For many outside of the Friends or Quaker traditions you may ask what a recorded minister is: the short answer is that I have demistrated gifts of ministry that our Yearly Meeting has recorded in their minutes. To translate this into other terms I am an ordained pastor, but as Friends we believe that God ordaines and mankind can only record what God has already done. More about myself: I have a degree in crop science from Fort Hays State University, and a masters degree in Christian ministry from Friends University. Both of these universities are in Kansas. I lived most of my life in Kansas on a farm in the north central area, some may say the north west. I currently live and minister in the Kansas City, MO area and am a pastor in a programed Friends Meeting called Willow Creek Friends Church.
