These weekly meetings provide time and space for Fellows and leaders to share meals, laughter, conversation, teaching, and prayer requests. Roundtables address different topics each week, all related to connecting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every aspect of life. Guest speakers from the community share with Fellows and facilitate discussion. In preparation for each Roundtable, Fellows have discipleship homework. Roundtables are scheduled for Monday evenings, 6:00-8:30pm and take place at various locations throughout the Charleston area.
LEARNING THROUGH STUDY
Fellows engage in biblical and theological coursework, deepening their understanding of Scripture and God’s redemptive purposes in the world. Through reading, online talks, and written reflections, the Holy City Fellows curriculum helps Fellows comprehend the fullness of God’s plan for the world and how the Gospel applies to all of life. The curriculum is divided into five parts:
PART ONE: The Gospel Story and our Response
The Gospel is the story of how God pursued us through Christ and formed a relationship with us, and how he calls us to respond in faith and obedience.
PART TWO: Freedom in Christ
Exploring our personal stories to see how Christ offers us freedom and peace through his unfathomable love.
PART THREE: Healthy Relationships
Developing healthy relationships through church, family, and practicing conflict resolution.
PART FOUR: Faith and Work
Discovering how to integrate our faith with our work and use our careers for God’s Kingdom.
PART FIVE: Hearing God’s Voice
Learning to follow the Spirit’s leading especially in times of decision
In addition to articles, chapters, and other online resources, Fellows will read The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness by Tim Keller, The Gift of Being Yourself by David Benner, Loveology by John Mark Comer, and The Gospel at Work by Traeger and Gilbert. Fellows spend about 3-4 hours reading and studying each week.
