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.

We will be going through the Pray Course video series by Pete Grieg, an eight week journey through the Lord's Prayer.

This group is for everyone, from those just starting their spiritual journey to seasoned followers of Jesus. The video series topics include Adoration, Petition, Intercession, Unanswered Prayer, Contemplation, Listening, and Spiritual Warfare.  We will have a time for social interaction, and a time of discussion after each video.

WORK: GROWING, THRIVING, SUCCEEDING

TUESDAY | 6:30-8:00PM | SPECIAL INTEREST | LEADER: MARIA BERTA

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Zoom Online | Duration: 5 Weeks

As a former HR Director with 25 years in the field, I would love to share my experience with others. The purpose of this group is to help support and mentor people around work/career issues. We will meet for 5 sessions via Zoom online. Each week we will focus on a different topic. Some examples include how to pivot to a new career, updating your resume, how to interview, coping with difficult co-workers or bosses, and other work-related topics. I've mentored people who need to elevate their skills, move to a new career, and go back to school to learn a new field. I've also been involved in conflict resolution, employee/employer disputes, harassment prevention, and all sorts of other "sticky situations" and I am excited to help people in our community by sharing my experience. I'd like to also remind people that we need to honor all labor, that we are all equal in God's eyes, from janitor to CEO, and ask the Lord to bless us in our work endeavors.

WOMEN'S GROUPS

YOU BELONG

MONDAY | 6:30-8:00PM | BOOK/VIDEO STUDY | LEADER: KARRI THEODORE

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Zoom Online | Duration: 7 weeks

Because God Is Who He Says He Is. Have you ever wondered why a true sense of fulfillment, abundance, freedom, joy, and connection seems elusive?
Sometimes our biggest questions are answered in ways we just didn't consider. With insight and exuberance, Bible study teacher Candace Payne walks through the five ways God names Himself in relation to us and how each name adds a layer of truth to how we belong. It has nothing to do with us, but everything to do with Him and He meets us at every turn to prove it. In this Bible study, we will dig deep into the characteristics of the God who claims us, considers us, names us, and loves us. Understanding who we are through who God says He is, erases all the boxes we've put ourselves and others into and unleashes joy-filled freedom.

BELIEVING JESUS

LEADER: CATHY MITCHELL

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

In Believing Jesus, an 8-session DVD study, Lisa Harper retraces the steps of the apostles in the book of Acts, while throwing in a few of her own crazy adventures along the way. The disciples didn't have much of a road map after Jesus ascended to heaven, but God's grace and spirit filled in the gaps as they moved forward. It required their willingness to risk everything to establish a new community that would change the future world. Are you willing to risk everything?

LADIES JOURNALING

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

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Zoom Online | Duration: 6 Weeks

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.
