No matter how big or small a church is, there’s always a need to connect in a more casual group context than a Sunday Morning Worship Service. In our SMALL GROUPS we discuss how it’s going as you learn to follow Jesus, we study the Bible to see how it might help, and simply pray with other Jesus-followers as we keep putting one foot in front of the other, walking with Jesus in the REAL world.
Our SMALL GROUPS meet in different parts of the city; some of them split up demographically, some even along lines of interest and affinity, but all of them are designed to help YOU follow Jesus, one day at a time.
Here is a list of our current SMALL GROUPS:
Monday and Wednesday night Sermon Based Small Groups
You were just in church a few days ago and you heard a great sermon … but now what? Sermon based small groups are an opportunity to re-visit that sermon and explore its meaning and application to our everyday family, work and social situations. Participating in one of these groups gives you an opportunity to hear each others’ ideas and thoughts, and all of a sudden the Sunday sermon takes on a whole new depth of meaning.
Currently we offer two of these groups:
EVERY MONDAY NIGHT, 7:30pm at the home of Cathy and John Fairchild. Consider yourself invited! For location details, please contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org
EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, 7:00pm at the home of Einar and Jenn Skolseg. No need to reserve a seat, just show up! Please note – we don’t meet the last Wednesday of the month in order to join the church prayer time at Marden. For location details, contact email@example.com
Leader: Lindsay Irvine
We get together (with our babies and toddlers) to encourage and pray for each other in the exciting and challenging task of young motherhood, in all of its joys (thankfully), dreariness (sometimes), weariness (often) and rewards (daily). If this is your role these days we invite you to drop in and join the group as we chat, laugh and pray together EVERY THURSDAY MORNING between 10:00 and noon. A great chance for you and your little ones to make some new friends and share some life together. For location details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Men’s Bible Study
Leader’s name: Josh Cowan
Our group meets EVERY MONDAY NIGHT from 7:30 to 9:30 to study the life and words of Jesus as recorded in the book of Luke in the New Testament. Each week we focus on a specific passage and dig into its meaning and application for our daily lives, learning to listen to God’s voice as we encounter it in Scripture. It’s amazing what you hear when you intentionally slow down and listen to God and each other. Come and join us any Monday evening. For location details, contact email@example.com
Family Friendly Small Group
The name says it all! EVERY SECOND SUNDAY after the first service at church we get together from 11:00 until 2:00 for a potluck lunch, prayer and good conversation. The format typically consists of listening to a short podcast or watching a video and then discussing as a group. Kids are welcome and they love it, and we think you will too. For location details, contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday Afternoon Family Small Group
Leader’s name: Jon and Julie Klapwyk
Come and join a group of young families seeking to grow together in faith, community and friendship. We meet EVERY SECOND SUNDAY AFTERNOON at 3:30pm to pray, study and share a meal together. We love to welcome visitors and help them feel at home. Please contact email@example.com for location details.
Women's Bible Study
Leaders name: Liz Pol and Mary Anne Sutton
EVERY MONDAY NIGHT at 6:45pm a group of us get together at Grace Community Church, and with the help of Kay Arthur study materials we are working our way through portions of the Old Testament. The study times in themselves are great, but the prayer, support, friendship and encouragement are also a valued part of every get together. Join us any time; you’ll only be a visitor once.
