We offer Small Groups every Fall and Spring semester. The topics offered are always changing so you’ll never get bored! These weekly meetings are a great way to learn something new and get connected with great people. Sign ups for the Fall semester begin on 8/27.
Check out the Fall 2017 Small Group list below!
A study of the scriptural names of God. Using resources from the Blue Letter Bible, we study the names of God from the Old Testament(Jehovah Raah, Quannah, etc) and from 365 Names and Characteristics of God by John Paul Jackson) his names and attributes from all of the Bible. The aim is to look at these names and have God reveal Himself to us in that way and to discover more of His personality and character by the names He chooses for Himself.
Intercessory Prayer group – High level intercession for the promised messy revival, move of the Holy Spirit in the services, the pastors and any other issue that is on the heart of God and the pastors. (For those who have participated previously, this will be the same type of intercessory group as last fall and spring. New intercessors welcome!)
The Daniel Plan program helps to equip us with the practical tools to bring health into every area of our lives!
This fall, our group will incorporate what we learned last semester about healthy eating with a special focus on improving fitness. Meetings will include a short video, fellowship, discussion and prayer time, recipe exchanging and a healthy snack to enjoy, and working on learning some “fitness moves” that we can incorporate into our own fitness regimens.
Purchasing and reading The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life, inexpensive at Amazon.com, is recommended but not essential.

Fatigue, shallow relationships, fractured families . . . these are just a few of the troubling side-effects of a frenetic culture that seems to be “always running but never arriving.” Learn to make “love” your #1 priority, slow down to a “meaningful speed,” concentrate on what really matters—and simplify your life.
Study guide available on Amazon. (We have four study guides available)
What do I think God is like? This is one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves and one of the most important aspects of our faith. Our small group will be based on the book “God is Good: He’s Better Than You Think” by Bill Johnson and will include watching video teachings as well as discussion of the book. We promise it will be challenging, but it will also be life changing and life giving.
God is Good: He's Better Than You Think by Bill Johnson.
Join us for this time of faith-building and support for one another as we
believe God together to bring our prodigals “home.” A short encouraging
devotional reminding us of God’s heart for our loved ones will be followed by a time of prayer for them.

How to Respond to Today’s Most Divisive Issues
Bring light – not heat – to divisive issues! Helping you talk openly and respectfully about today’s challenging topics, Chip reveals and calls into question presuppositions on both sides. He believes that basing our convictions on research, reason, and biblical truth, we’ll be able to speak the truth in love on abortion, homosexuality, sex, politics, the environment, and more. Culture Shock is every engaged believer’s must-have guidebook to replacing reactionary hate with revolutionary love.
This 12 part study includes the following messages:
What Ever Happened to Right and Wrong?
Human Sexuality: The Search for the Truth About Sex
Homosexuality: What Do You Say to a Gay Friend?
Understanding Abortion: A Thoughtful Analysis
The Church and the Environment
The Church and Politics
“We want to see more [men] able to navigate their lives from a place of freedom and wholeness, using the biblical tools of transformation made available by God through His Word.”

This will provide an in-depth look into the controversy of evolution and creation. The level of science information will be easily understood. You will soon perceive that this is not “faith vs. science” but rather “faith vs. faith” and why it is a raging war between two world views. Since the lie of evolution has permeated so deeply into our culture, all Christians need to be able to defend the hope that lies within us, especially when talking about science and the Bible. Sadly, many Christians either don’t want to talk about it with non-believers or they make classic mistakes based on wrong information. This experience will arm you with basic but powerful info that can make you feel comfortable engaging others with Truth. It will also reveal the proper attitude and approach to take when speaking to others. You will discover amazing truths within Scripture that will endear your hearts to this small group experience.
Here are some of the nuggets you will learn from this group:
1) Accurate beliefs from both sides of the issue.
2) The spiritual battle behind the debate.
3) Scientific evidence against evolution.
4) Biblical insights against evolution.
5) How pre-flood conditions distort evolutionists conclusions.
6) Age of the earth and assumptions with dating methods.
7) Scientific evidence for a global flood and how the Noah’s Ark experience is scientifically possible.
8) Dinosaurs and fossils and the Bible.
9) Lies and misleading tricks in textbooks that impede critical thinking.
This Power Point presentation will provide many meaningful visuals that will quicken understanding and recall. There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussions. You will not be disappointed!
No fees. Bring a Bible.
We will be conducting a verse by verse study of Philippians. Through this study, we will discover truths that we can apply in our lives daily.
We’ll be going through Larry Tomczak’s book, “Bullseye: Becoming An Informed Influencer In Today’s Changing Culture”. There will be reading each week in preparation for each meeting, where we will discuss such issues as: perseverance, the Apocalypse, happiness, prosperity, politics, Islam, gay “marriage,” pornography, living together, divorce and remarriage, homosexuality, transgenderism, social justice, immigration, AIDS and suicide, among other topics. The goal is that we will each possess a Biblical perspective on these issues and can share those perspective with love and grace.
Just the book, available all over the web.
