Goal of Small Groups:
• Grow in our Relationships
• Confidence in our Faith
• Encourage Discipleship

Relationships

The more we meet together in small groups and talk about the issues that we are each struggling with – the closer we will bond with each other. This bond is what builds up Christian fellowship and increases the drive to encourage each other to live the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Faith

You need to have a regular time alone with God to read and study His word and to spend time in prayer; however, to grow in your faith – it requires that you openly discuss what you are studying with other Christians. The result builds a stronger relationship with God and increases your confidence in your faith.

Discipleship

The most important relationship of all – the one you have with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is what it is all about. Helping each other grow and mature in faith. So many times in our discussions, someone will say something so profound that it touches my heart and lifts my soul. I would never experience or know this joy without spending time in fellowship with other disciples. Disciples who help to grow other disciples by sharing the love of Christ.

24 Hours That Changed the World

Description: What a difference a day makes. You hear people say that phrase all the time. It could not be truer than when talking about the last day of Jesus’ life. In 24 Hours This study will help you understand the significance of Jesus’ suffering and death like never before. Retrace the day that changed human history in a straightforward yet easy, conversational style that speaks to both long-time Christians and those who are simply curious about the story of Christ’s crucifixion.

In the DVD, Hamilton draws on insights from history, archaeology, geography, and the Bible and takes us to the Holy Land where he provides a deeper understanding of the most amazing day in history. We visit the sites where those earth-shaking events took place, and we walk where Jesus walked along the road that led to the pain and triumph of the cross.

FACILITATOR: Joe Locke
SUNDAY:  @ 9:45 am  Starts Feb 23 – Apr 5
LOCATION: @ Church Fellowship Hall

Trustworthy

Description:  Are you exhausted trying to keep everything under control because you fear God won’t come through?
When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re much more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our own ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try.

Join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply personal and applicable scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God. Through this study of 1 and 2 Kings, you’ll learn to:
• Loosen the grip of trying to control people and circumstances in your life by taking steps today to truly rely on God.
• Identify your own trust issues with God and how to overcome them by unpacking pivotal, relevant life lessons from the kings of the Old Testament.
• Find relief from fear or doubt about how things will turn out with 10 scriptural truths you can declare over your situation right now.

Frequently asked questions:

 

Where do groups meet?

Most of our Small Groups meet in homes or at the church.  Depending on the time of year and the group the location could be different.  After you sign-up for a group, you will receive an email from the leader shortly before it starts with information about the location, etc.

How often?

Depends on the group.  Usually weekly.  The length of the group depends on the study.  Most Small Groups last 4 – 8 weeks; however, more in-depth studies go for 12+ weeks.

 

Is childcare provided?

Groups that meet on Wed. nights when supper is provided, child care is also available.  Groups that meet on other nights may or may not offer child care – members can determine if they would like to share costs, etc.  If enough groups meet on the same night, let us know and we can try to arrange this if needed.

What is the meeting format?

Each group creates their own.  Basic recommended approach for each, includes:

–  Welcome and enjoy time together
–  Gather and Open with prayer
–  Devotion / Bible Study
–  Prayer concerns – close in prayer
