Small Group Studies

Below are some opportunities to enhance your spiritual life:

Advent study starting November 28th:

The first Sunday of Advent this year falls on November 28. During that holy season the Spiritual Growth Ministry Team will once again be offering a book study. There will be at least three groups, all studying While We Wait: Living the Questions of Advent by Mary Lou Redding. In the words of one bookstore’s promotion….

“This book offers new ways of connecting study participants with their own faith questions. Group members have the chance to look at some biblical figures on whom we don’t always focus during Advent. Somewhat surprisingly, Tamar, Ruth, Mary, Zechariah, Elizabeth, and the Magi ask questions that resonate with contemporary Christians during this season. Designed as a complete Advent study, this book offers readers unique perspectives on the events of Christmas, a fifth session for the week of Epiphany, an introduction to the spiritual discipline of breath prayer, and much more.

• Living in Hope: What Will You Give Me?

• Finding a Home: Why Have I Found Favor in Your Sight?

• The Wonder of Being Sought: Why Has This Happened to Me?

• Wrestling with Mystery: How Can This Be?

• Sharing the Light: Where Is the One?

Mary Lou Redding serves as managing editor of The Upper Room daily devotional guide, published in 64 editions and 44 languages. She has written numerous magazine articles and is the former president of the Associated Church Press.

There are four opportunities to join this study:

  • Sunday after church in the Fitzgerald room with Jen Linton starting November 28th
  • Monday Evening class 6:30 pm with Deb Mack starting November 29th
  • Tuesday at 10:30 am in the Library with Betty Smith starting November 30th
  • Thursday at 10:30 am via Zoom with Sheldon Keller starting December 2nd

Books are available in the office at no charge for people who are participating in the study groups. Please contact Ruth in the church office to sign up.

Stay tuned for more details!

Wednesdays, 11:00 am, Prayer Group
With all the growth and activity in our church and having learned about developing a life of prayer, our church has embarked on a journey in praying together. Pastor Rebecca leads a prayer meeting in back of the church or in the Sanctuary in the event of rain)  every Wednesday at 11 am. Scripture and a prayer outline are provided for us to pray together for our church, its people, and other concerns brought to us. This meeting generally lasts between 30-40 minutes, and you can add people/situations/prayers of your own. There is a deep sense of “joy” in coming together with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, praying to God for our church and one another.
