God created and redeemed us for community - to live the Christian life together. In Hebrews 10:24-25, we are urged to “consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another…” In John 13:35, Jesus said others would know His disciples by how we love one another.
Our Small Groups - Sunday School Classes, Bible Study Groups, as well as Community Groups - foster deep relationships where we can grow in Christ together. They not only equip us to know God through His Word, but encourage us to share His Gospel so that others might come to know Him too.

Women's Study - God of Freedom by Jen Wilkin
When: Wednesdays on September 7 through November 9 at 9:30am
Where: Room 204 or via Zoom
Join us for God of Freedom, Exodus 19-40 with Jen Wilkin for 10 weeks. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has brought his people out of slavery in Egypt and miraculously delivered them from Pharaoh’s grip as they walked thru the Red Sea on dry ground. After 45 days they arrived at the base of Mt Sinai. This is where this Study begins... let's join them on their journey through the story of how God forms them into a free Nation and shepherds His newly-liberated children into an understanding of what their freedom means: lives consecrated for service to God and to one another. Revisit the giving of the Ten Commandments, the intricate details of the tabernacle, and how we trace the promise of Christ throughout. And with a fresh perspective, ask what these stories teach us as God's children today about how to live as those set free.
We will be diving deep into Exodus 19-40 and meeting to discuss what we're learning, to discover additional insights from Jen’s teaching video, and to pray. Contact Shari Penland or Judy Howell to let us know you'll be joining us and to answer any questions.
Sunday Morning Bible Study - Turning Everyday Conversations into Gospel Conversations
When: Sunday Mornings at 9am
Where: Room 108
For far too long, evangelism and missions have been seen as the exclusive responsibility of trained pastors and ministry leaders. But Scripture is clear that the Great Commission is not given to just those few, but rather to every single believer.
In Turning Everyday Conversations Into Gospel Conversations, authors Jimmy Scroggins and Steve Wright outline a reproducible method of sharing the gospel that has been tested in the real world. This method is a simple strategy to train new and seasoned believers to join God in His reconciliation work. Scroggins and Wright not only equip believers to use the innovative "3 Circles," a user-friendly evangelistic tool, but also train readers to share the good news of the gospel through incorporation of the biblical metanarrative and personal story.
Contact Kelly Farley, the study facilitator, for more information.
