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 Story

FACILITATOR: Joe Locke
Thursday:  @ 6:30 pm  Started on Jan 7th 
LOCATION: @ The Church (Conference Room)
FOR: ALL are welcome 

Description:  While this study will go for a few months, please feel free to join us at any time.  You will not be lost in the discussions by missing previous sessions.

God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about: the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the world’s most popular modern-English Bible, the New International Version, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. Like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption – and this story’s true!

Elijah

FACILITATOR: Sue Ward
WEDNESDAY:  @ 6:30 pm  Starts on Feb 3 rd
LOCATION: @ Church  
FOR: Ladies 

Description:

Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho.

And Elijah—calling down fire on Mount Carmel.

Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory—months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable.

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.

Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

Participants need to purchase the Elijah-Bible Study Book (available from LifeWay or Amazon).

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, children K5-6th grade can attend their program.  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
