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 Sunday 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 Biblical Story
Engaging the big picture of the Bible to see how all the pieces fit together and how God’s story provides meaning and direction for our lives.
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, friendship, 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 Drama of Scripture by Craig Bartholomew and Michael Goheen, Work Matters by Tom Nelson, and The Voice of Jesus by Gordon Smith. Fellows spend about 3-4 hours reading and studying each week.
