SMALL GROUPS

Important update for Small Groups

INTRODUCING VIRTUAL SMALL GROUPS

Due to the impact of COVID-19 around the world, we have had to get very creative about meeting in small groups! We believe the importance of our church meeting in small groups remains the same, even though the method might be very different than what we are used to! We are excited to be hosting several virtual small groups so that we can remain in a spirit-centered community during this tough time. If you have any questions about virtual small groups, please email Michelle below.

Virtual Small Groups

Refresh Your Mind

Starts April 15th

Toward more “worship, discovery, cheer, and faith,” please consider joining our virtual study on how to refresh& habitualize the health of your perspective, thoughts & decisions within the context of faith & science as introduced in Dr. Caroline Leaf’s book, “Switch on Your Brain.” You may sign up for this 8 week study with Angela here:

Dealing with Anger

Starts April 9th

For many people, anger is the most difficult emotion to manage well.  They live with a lot of guilt about the damage they have done to those they love when they have been angry. For some, they feel angry all the time, but they aren't sure why. They are like a volcano, with the anger lava constantly bubbling below the surface. Most people who have experienced childhood trauma have deep anger issues. Some have lived for a period of time with an angry and abusive person, and it has damaged them deeply. Come and learn about what causes your anger, and learn tools for dealing with that anger in a healthy way.

Childbirth Preparation

Starts April 27

Participants will be assigned up to 1 hour per week of current, evidence based videos to watch on their own time, to be discussed with experienced Certified Childbirth Educator/Doula, Janice Koepnick, in real time zoom sessions. 

1 Hour Online Live Sessions:  Sunday May 3, Monday May 11, Sunday May 24

For: Pregnant Mothers with 1 Support Person with due dates April-August 30. 

Pursuing Rich Community

Starts April 21st

This topic is for anyone who wants to develop a deeper understanding of the Biblical mandate to grow communities that love richly, communities that enable Christians to effectively grow and thrive. It will help us know the importance of and be more skilled to accomplish this prime mission of the church.

This group will be meeting together over the course of 6 weeks via Zoom. Introduction evening via Zoom on Tuesday, April 21st from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm.
