UPCOMING SMALL GROUPS


Redeeming Technology: A Christian Approach to Healthy Digital Habits (10 weeks). Wednesdays January 4 – April 26 from 6:00 - 6:45. (Not meeting during Lent). Americans spend approximately 11 hours per day on social media, in front of a screen or texting friends and family. A Lutheran pastor teamed up with a psychiatrist to develop this study which considers: how all of this media time affects both physical and spiritual well-being, and how one can find a healthy balance of technology while still being focused on Christ.


The Book of Job (12 weeks). Wednesdays January 4 – May 10 from 6:00 - 6:45. (Not meeting during Lent). One of the most fascinating books within Scripture, Job raises questions of suffering and evil permitted in this world and God’s relationship to man and creation. This study will dive deep into Job and the questions surrounding his trial and tribulations.


Christmas Carols (4 weeks) Mondays, via zoom, November 28-December 19, 7pm. The store shelves are stocked, lights are going up, shopping has begun... but is this what Christmas is about? This Advent, you are invited to take time to truly prepare for Christmas in our third annual special Advent Small Group.

The Characters of Christmas: the “Stuff” edition (4 weeks) Tuesdays, November 29-December 20, 6 pm We are all familiar with the Nativity story, as told in the Gospel of Luke, but what do we know about the different objects at the forefront of the birth of Jesus? In this study, we will consider the swaddling cloths, the manger, the star, and the gifts of the magi.


Mere Christianity (12 weeks) Sundays, January 8-April 23, 7pm. In this classic treatise, C.S. Lewis explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Mere Christianity is a compilation of Lewis’ legendary broadcast talks during World War Two which provide an unequaled and powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.


The Hiding Place (6 weeks) Tuesdays, January 10-February 14, 6pm. Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance after she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis. A survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, in this book Corrie tells the story of God’s continued mercy and how faith ultimately triumphs over evil.


Why Did Jesus Have to Die? (6 weeks) Tuesdays, February 28-April 4, 6pm. This study examines the most profound event of salvation history: the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. By exploring from a biblical perspective what is known as the doctrine of the Atonement, participants will better understand what Christ has done for us in pursuit of answering the central question: “Why did Jesus have to die?” 


Musicians Who Are Christians (4 weeks) Mondays, April 17-May 8, 6pm. Air-1, K-Love and The Fish are Christian music radio stations, as are Star 102.1, The Eagle and The Wolf.

Musicians include: Duke Ellington, Styx, Johnny Cash, U2.
