Small Groups

Jesus called a group of fishermen to come and follow him. Much like apprentices with a master, they learned and sought to imitate Jesus' words, works and way of life.  Jesus continues to call ordinary, broken people to follow him. When we respond to that call, we enter a lifetime of learning to live like Jesus in relationship with him and other disciples.  Our spiritual growth as followers of Jesus is crucial to living out our understanding of what it means to be disciples who know Christ and makes Christ known.
 Coming soon! On Sunday, January 10th, Sunday Night discipleship opportunities will be available both virtually and in-person, with a variety of options as listed below. So take a moment to reflect upon where you need to grow most and sign-up today, using the App, clicking the link below, or by calling the church office.
***Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person small groups are currently meeting virtually. ***
Please contact the small group leader or contact the church office to receive a link to join these studies virtually.

A Creative Faith Led by Erin Miniard.  *REGISTRATION FULL*
“Come and paint your way to new friendships. We'll start this class with working on pre-cut wooden pieces and go from there. You do not have to have prior painting skills or consider yourself creative and artistic. You just need a willingness to walk through the door and snag a seat." (Class limit is 15.)
Who is My Neighbor? Learning Spanish as Church Hospitality Facilitated by Matt Seaton
Who Is My Neighbor? (¿Quién es mi vecino?) is a field-tested resource through which English speakers of any church and congregation can learn basic Spanish-speaking skills to be able to communicate and provide a welcoming atmosphere to the Hispanic communities surrounding them.  The six-session resource developed by the Northern Illinois Conference covers basic conversational Spanish, and simple and easy to follow Spanish-language worship material.   The program encourages openness toward Spanish-speaking neighbors, understanding of different cultures, and compassion for those who struggle to learn English.

Meeting Jesus Facilitated by Jim Bell
Once you've met Jesus, you are never the same again. His teaching challenges your thinking. His compassion softens your heart. His love turns your life around. In this thirteen session LifeGuide® Bible Study, evangelist Leighton Ford leads you through thirteen studies from the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) that will open your eyes anew--or for the first time--to Jesus Christ.
Soul Feast Facilitated by Nancy Ferguson
Few books in Westminster John Knox's publishing history have been so embraced and so loved as Marjorie Thompson's Soul Feast. First released in 1995, this spiritual classic continues to be a best-seller, as thousands each year accept her invitation to the Christian spiritual life. Offering a framework for understanding the spiritual disciplines and instruction for developing and nurturing those practices, Soul Feast continues to be a favorite for individual reflection and group study. Now engagingly redesigned to appeal to contemporary spiritual-seekers and repackaged for easier use in study and reflection, Soul Feast is a must-have.
