Small Groups

 
 
 
Small group members find the friendships, growth opportunities, and encouragement to stay strong week in and week out.  Every believer needs a church home, but we also need a small group of other believers for support and encouragement. A small group is a non-threatening casual environment where you will have the opportunity to fellowship, go deeper in biblical truths, care for and be cared for by others, experience life together with others.  In these small group environments you will learn to value the accountability, prayer, encouragement and connections that are made.
 
When you come, you can expect a casual atmosphere where relationships are highly valued. We’ll hang out, build relationships, study the Bible and challenge each other to grow in our walk with God. Come and experience what God can do in your life through these groups.

Get the most out of Small Group by studying the Bible for yourself!

We use a simple method of studying through the Bible for understanding and application. This method is known simply as SOAP. By using this simple approach to studying God’s Word, we can discover more about who God is and the plans He has for our lives. If you would like a copy of our current Bible Reading Plan you can get a PDF version here.
 

The following describes what SOAP is and how best to use it:

S – SCRIPTURE:

Read your scripture, then write in your journal the verse(s) that stand out to you in the passage. 

O – OBSERVATION:

What do you think God is saying to you? Rewrite the scripture in your own words.  Consult your commentary for help. 

A – APPLICATION:

Personalize what you’ve read by asking yourself how it applies to your life.  Is it an instruction? An encouragement? A promise? A call to take corrective action? Write how this scripture applies to you today.

P – PRAYER:

Your prayer can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, praising him for something he’s done, or confessing a sin.  Write it out, just like you would an email, text or letter.

THEN LIVE IT OUT!
