CONNECTING with others | Moving beyond Sunday courtesies to sharing life together

GROWING together in Jesus | Growing beyond information to transformation in life and thinking

DOING LIFE together | God designed us for relationship


We have a variety of small groups that are created around connecting with people who share similar interests or life experiences, are at the same stage of life, or want to grow in a certain area.

WOMEN'S GROUPS

LADIES JOURNALING

SATURDAY | 9:00-10:30AM | BIBLE STUDY | LEADER: MONIQUE THOMPSON

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Zoom Online | Duration: Ongoing

Journaling is an excellent way to both record and process what God speaks to us. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time, to reflect on and review some of the 'gems' that you have received. Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons! And while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your journaling with your small group or mentors. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight and encourage others & receive encouragement from others. This group is for all women whether you have journaled before or not. It is a casual time to get together via Zoom and read a passage together, write about what we are reading and then if comfortable share and discuss what we have read. All you need to bring is a Bible, pen/pencil, journal, and an open heart.

STUCK

WEDNESDAYS 7:00-8:30PM  |  VIDEO/BOOK STUDY | LEADER: CATHY MITCHELL

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Zoom Online | Duration: 8 Weeks

So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can't even name. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything but...God. He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to restore us.
