Summer Book Club

Join us this summer for Book Club! We’re excited to come around this book, leaning into practical spiritual growth and deepening friendships through good conversation and praying for one another. We’re strongly encouraging those who come to commit to, as best as they can, read the chapter before coming. We believe this will help both the group discussion and you, individually, get out of it everything God has for you!*
*That being said, please know that if you have a week you can’t get to the reading, we don’t want that to keep you from coming!

Want a book? Since this is a book club … well, you’re going to need a book! If you’d like to purchase your own copy or go the Kindle / Audible route, you’re welcome to do so. Or, if you sign up by May 26th, you can get a discounted copy of the book ($6). (Books will be passed out at the Community night, 6/3.) Register HERE.

About the book: How to Be Unsuccessful by Pete Portal
In the midst of our anxious and exhausted culture, we’re taking up Jesus on His invitation to redefine success of His terms. This book explores true success in light of the Kingdom.

The author, Pete Portal, leads a church in Manenberg (South Africa) running ministries among the vulnerable and marginalized. He and his wife Sarah do life with young men coming out of gangsterism and drug addiction and, along with a team a friends, disciple these young men into faith, freedom, and wholeness.

Chapter overviews:

Success is… following God’s calling over good ideas. 
God’s calling might look like wasting your life.

Success is… pursuing relationship over relevance. 
Our desire to feel truly seen can’t be met by achieving relevance, but only deep friendship.

Success is… growing in depth rather than volume.
Being kind – even when it makes us unseen or unsuccessful – may be the greatest influence we have.

Success is… transforming over transferring.
Different ways of dealing with pain can deeply impact our lives – either transferring it to others, or taking it to God and allowing him to transform it.

Success is… being a faithful presence in the culture wars.
To follow Jesus is to be concerned with the social, economic, and political conditions in this world, and dismantling injustice is actually God’s prescription for our own flourishing.

Success is… power and participation.
Let’s explore the ideas of resurrection power and participatory suffering, how churches engage with them, and how to balance both in our lives.

FAQs

If you fall in that 22-35 age range, you are welcome here. That said, we won’t have childcare available during Monday meetings, and acknowledge that that (as well as the time we meet) may not be ideal for those with kids. It’s up to you.

We have an incredible ministry here designed for college & college-age students called Prodigal. We’d love to get you connected there! However, Young Adults is intended to be a community for those who have already finished their undergraduate degree or are around that age. If you took some time off before college or have followed a non-traditional route – say, maybe you find yourself at 25 years old, yet still completing your undergraduate degree. In these sorts of cases, we’ll leave it up to you and which community feels most conducive to your stage of life!
