Bible Studies & Small Groups

Christians grow best when they worship together, grow through study and small groups and serve amongst our neighbors. We encourage you to look through this list of small groups and studies and get involved. If you’re already active in worship, let’s take the next step and grow together.

In addition to these small groups, Sunday School classes for all ages meet on Sundays at 9:40 a.m. We also encourage everyone to "band together" and become part of a small group. Groups can be as small as three people, and you can meet in person or electronically. Learn more about banding together

  • "eleven indispensable relationships" 

    Led by Keith Keeton

    Sundays beginning April 16 for four weeks  /  6-7 p.m.  /  Room 303

    We were created to live in relationship. God only described one thing as bad in the creation story: loneliness. We all need others to live into the fullest expressions of our created selves. In Len Sweet’s book “11 Indispensable Relationships You Can’t Be Without,” he outlines those people that everyone needs. Tracing the Biblical characters, he asks us who we might be missing. Keith invites you to join him as we consider the qualities we need in those around us.
