NEW Series starting January 18, 2020

One of the most common descriptions of God is that He is compassionate. But what does that mean? And how does it affect us and how we should live? Jesus lived out the divine compassion, and the rest of the New Testament tells us that we are to show how we are made in God's image by exhibiting the same kind of compassion as Jesus did. Sessions planned for January and February 2020:

Jan 4: informal breakfast at Sunrise Bistro, Walnut Creek

Jan 11: tbd

Jan 18: God's Compassion (Old Testament)

Jan 25: God's Compassion (New Testament)

Feb 1: Compassion in the Church

Feb 8: Informal breakfast at Jack's in Pleasant Hill

Feb 15: Compassion in the Home

Feb 22: Compassion in the Workplace

Feb 29: Compassion in the World

These will all be guided discussions. Handouts will be provided, but most of the learning will occur together as we look at God's Word and what it has to say to us as men seeking to imitate Jesus Christ's compassion in all aspects of our lives.

Frequently asked questions

Q. Do I have to know the Bible to be eligible to attend?

A. No! There will be some who have spent many years in studying the Bible, and some who have barely even opened. But we all have a ton to learn from opening it together.


Q. What will our meetings be like?

A. This will likely vary, depending on what we’re all looking for and how the Spirit leads us. But generally there will be some kind of teaching, and some discussion, and it will be informal and interactive.


Q. Is this just for older men?

A. No, at Generations we believe that older men can learn from younger and vice versa. God works in His church as all generations grow together.


Q. I’m not used to meetings like this. What is expected of me?

A. We simply want you to turn up. You can be an active participant, or as quite as a church mouse. You won’t be expected to read or pray aloud if you don’t want to, or to join in the conversation, or even do homework. But of course, the more you put into it, the more you will get out.


Q. Who will be leading?

A. The Holy Spirit, through men who feel called to teach or lead discussions. This will vary over time, and each “leader” will bring their own style and background to the table, and the rest of us will bring our contributions.

Q. Do I have to be a member of Generations Church?

A. No, this is open to anyone who wants to grow as a follower of Jesus Christ.
