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.

The Armor of God

7-Session Video-Driven Women’s Study from Best-Selling Author Priscilla Shirer

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.  But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.  The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way

What went wrong? Why did God let this happen?

Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands daily disappointments and life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.  In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa offers a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspective for living in between Eden and eternity.  With solid truth, vulnerability and honest humor, Lysa will help you find peace and hope for the future when you feel like your life is not what you expected.With solid truth, vulnerability and honest humor, Lysa will help you find peace and hope for the future when you feel like your life is not what you expected.

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
