New Group! Starting Point: Small Group for Beginners
Have you ever wanted to be a part of a small group or a Bible study, but don’t know where to start or what it’s all about, or are worried you don’t know enough? We’ve all been there, that’s why we’ve created the Starting Point. You don’t have to have any knowledge of the Bible whatsoever, just a desire to grow in your faith and be in connection with other believers. While we learn so much about the amazing God we serve in the Starting Point, our main purpose is to provide a space for beginners to experience what being in a small group is all about. If you’re new to Aldersgate, or even if you have been here for a while, and you think this group is for you, then it is and I’d love for you to join us. For more information, contact Lisa Sebastian at LSebastian@Aldersgate.com or 727-542-1615. Please register using the form below.

New Study! Study with Pastor Steve

Study A Firm Foundation: Hope and Vision for a New Methodist Future with Pastor Steve on Wednesday evenings. What does the future hold for the United Methodist Church? It is the question being asked all around our denomination. What should be the response to the competing visions and notable division within contemporary Methodism? Can we explore the issues confronting us in a post-Christendom era without rupturing our relationships? Join Pastor Steve for this 8-week small group Bible study that engages in the deep-heart questions of United Methodists and casts a vision for what comes next. This study will explore classic ideas such as: the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the authority of Scripture, the power of the Holy Spirit, the promise of sanctification, the anchor of purpose, the dynamic of discipleship and the gift of the global church.

New Study!  Jesus Among Secular Gods: The Questions of Culture and the Invitation of Christ
Join us as we study Jesus Among Secular Gods: The Questions of Culture and the Invitation of Christ by Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale. Belief in the secular gods of atheism, scientism, pluralism, humanism, relativism, and hedonism continues to grow. Can you defend the claims of Christianity? This six-session Bible study challenges the popular and trending philosophies of today, skillfully pointing out the fallacies in their claims and presenting compelling evidence for absolute truth as found in Jesus and revealed in Scripture. Learn how to share your faith in a culture of opposing worldviews and to articulate why you believe Jesus stands tall above all other gods. This study will develop your confidence in challenging modern philosophies and worldviews, equip you to respond to difficult questions posed by unbelievers, teach you to competently counter cultural challenges while sharing the Christian faith.
