Small Groups

As we begin a New Year in 2021, let us seek to be steadfast in our faith. Let’s do our part to renew our minds and hearts, remembering our baptism and renewing our commitment to discipleship. Small group participation can renew our thinking and bring about a spirit of hope as we grow to be the followers of Christ he would have us to be. 


Below you will find many offerings for our 2021 classes and studies.

  • Didn't see that coming

    Beginning January 10

    7:00 p.m.

    Leader:  Clara Harris

    No one asks to have their life rearranged, but, as Rachel Hollis writes, it’s up to you how you come through changed for the better or rooted in what hurt you.  To Rachel, a life well-lived is one of purpose, focused only on the essentials. This is a small book about big feelings: inspirational, aspirational, and an anchor that shows that darkness can co-exist with the beautiful.

    Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events and ideas? How many times have you resolved to really understand the OT?

  • Hebrews Bible study

    Beginning January 20

    10:00 a.m.

    Leaders:  David and Bee Poston; Rusty and Fran Sitton

    The letter to the Hebrews was written to show that you can't go back to an earlier stage of God's purposes but must press on eagerly to the one that is yet to come. In these studies by Tom Wright, we find encouragement and assurance that pressing on, even in the face of such close and constant pressure to fall back, is its own reward. This is an eight-week study.  

  • Prayer Pause

    Beginning January 13

    7:00 p.m.

    Leader:  Becky Greene

    A group of young mothers searching the scriptures, using The Message translation.

  • Faith & Fire: Elijah

    Beginning January 14

    9:30 A.M.

    Leader:  Marti Sell

    Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes we can forget they each had a back story of difficulty and development which prepared them for the tasks to which God had called them.

    Join us in the seven-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine and how the fiery faith we desire is being fashioned by God in our lives right now.

  • Embrace: Following Jesus

    Every other Thursday beginning January 14

    7:00 p.m.

    Leader:  Mary Massey

    At one of the lowest points in Henri Nouwen’s life, he gave a series of lectures on the importance of following Jesus in an age of anxiety. Drawn from those talks, this new work reveals what sustained Nouwen to remain faithful to the teachings of Jesus and led him to become an icon of compassion and vulnerability. Here he writes eloquently about calling and purpose, fear and hope. And he explains why—with so many choices available to the twenty-first-century seeker—the greatest reward for those looking for spiritual direction is rediscovering Jesus’s teaching on love. Along the way, Nouwen offers warm, insightful, practical habits to help readers navigate the narrow, sometimes arduous, but ultimately fulfilling road of conviction and faith.

  • The Gifts of Imperfection

    Beginning January 13

    7:00 p.m.

    Leader:  Anne Mallonnee

    Book Study: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
