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.

2019 Fall Sign-Up is coming soon

Summertime is here and we are starting to plan for upcoming Small Groups.  The college group is off to a great start.  An adult group is going to start mid-July, pending responses to the email and on-line sign-up.  We will also be planning our Fall groups and getting information out in August for those.

The new summer group will be on Quel est…  This is French for “What is…” and we will address topics like:  The Bible, Gods Will, Salvation, Sin, Unity, etc. We will have some reading assignments prior to each discussion and will explore what the Bible says about each topic.  If you have a topic you want to explore, let us know.

Below is additional information for each group, with a link to the sign-up for the study you would like to join. If, by the close of sign-ups, we do not have enough for a group, we will contact you to see if another study would work for you. Please contact Joe Locke or the group facilitator for additional questions.

Hochschule-Age Bible Study

Each week we will take on a different “hot button” topic and take a deep dive into the Scriptures to see how the Bible informs and impacts our understanding of that particular subject. Our first topic will be on abortion. Other topics over the summer will include Immigration, Sexuality and the Methodist Divide, Stress/Anxiety, God and Career along with several others. Bring your Bible and a willingness to grow!! For more information contact Cam.

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
