SMALL GROUPS; Life is better connected!

What are Small Groups? Small groups of 8-12 adults, meet once a week for 6-12 weeks in a warm and inviting atmosphere at a Host home. Individuals and couples at all levels of their faith and stages of life are welcome. God uses relationships to help you grow. So if you want to build relationships, explore truths in the Bible, and support each other in prayer, experience Small Groups.

Currently, Small Groups are studying “Advent”. Sure, it is celebrated every Christmas season by reading scripture and lighting candles, but have you wondered what Advent is all about? Three small groups are available with Paul Groen, Jack Isherwood and Fred Finks serving as facilitators at different locations for your convenience. Study guides are $5.00. Sign up in Fellowship Hall or contact Dr. Fred Finks at fjfinks@gmail.com for more information.

Starting the week of January 15, 2018, we will begin a new series of Small Groups studying various topics at several locations, different times of the week. This is a perfect way to get involved with meeting new people and studying together in ways that deepens our faith. Please consider joining one of the following groups beginning on January 15.
