Fall 2022 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


  • confirmed

    Led by Keith Keeton

    Sundays at 5:30 p.m. in Room 315  

    OR

    Wednesdays at noon in Room 303

    Zoom option available


    In the Methodist Church, students of an appropriate age undergo a process of confirmation. The classes cover Christian beliefs, church history, Methodist history, Methodist polity (governance) and many other crucial foundational faith topics. It’s an essential step in discipling of youth. However, they’re not the only ones who need this valuable information. If it’s been a while since you were confirmed, if you were never confirmed or if you simply desire to learn in a small group, join us for this new study opportunity. Let’s learn all about the church together.

    This class has been developed to assist parents who are divorced, who never married but live separately or who live together but do not always agree about parenting. Over the six-week class, parents will develop skills to communicate and work together towards raising an independent child. Topics will include a discussion of personality types, various types of relationships, raising strong children, psychological effects of divorce on children, decision making, communication, discipline, alienation and beyond. There is no registration fee or other charge for this class; however, appropriate opportunities for love offerings may be provided.

  • courtside conversations

    Led by Karol St. Louis & Susan Eaton

    Mondays, 6-7:30 p.m. 

    at the home of Bo & Reagan Hrom


    Love tennis? Like discussing faith? Great! Join Karol St. Louis and Susan Eaton on Monday evenings for a new type of group. We’ll play tennis for 45 minutes, cool down, then have some good discussion about becoming faithful followers of Jesus. Alex Doleac will even teach us some fun drills. This will be “playful” tennis where everyone can participate. We’ll use “Redeeming How We Talk” to guide our discussion time. 

  • monday morning women's bible study

    Led by Susan Eaton

    Mondays, 10 a.m., September 12-October 17

    Room 303


    Susan will lead a study for women on "The Epic of Eden Psalms: An Ancient Challenge to Get Serious About Your Prayer and Worship" by Sandra Richter. The book of Psalms is well-known and well-worn. It is the Old Testament book most often quoted in the New Testament, and its quotations can be found everywhere from John Milton to “Star Trek” to congressional speeches. Why so much attention? The Church Father Athanasius said it best: “Most of Scripture speaks to us, but the book of Psalms speaks for us.” This study will help you answer, “So what does this have to do with me today?”

  • prayer shawl ministry

    Mondays at 1 p.m.

    This highly regarded program ministers to hurting individuals.
