Small Groups

Our small groups are organized to facilitate discipleship, to encourage believers to take next steps of growth as followers of Jesus Christ.  These groups foster the formation of close relationships with other believers, relationships characterized by transparency, mutual trust and accountability.  We believe such relationships are important to help us grow spiritually.  Because of the nature of our small groups, many of them are closed groups and not taking new participants.  If you are interested in a particular kind of group that is presently closed, let us know, and we will work to form a new group. 

  • Faking Church (Men's Group)

    Alternate Mondays, 6:30 a.m.

    Do we really want to serve God—or is it more rewarding to just look the part? This study explores the common traps and misconceptions that seduce believers into becoming spiritual fakes and how to react by creating a genuine servant’s hearts in place of the epidemic of churches “going through the motions.”

    Please contact Pastor Rick at (605) 682-9882 if you would like to join the group.

     

  • Fall Women's Bible Study - Women at Midlife

    Mondays, 6:00 p.m., September 10-October 29

    We will study "Women at Midlife: Embracing the Challenges" by Jeanie MIley.

    Midlife- it’s not a specific age, but a season of change!   Midlife is a time of transitions – some welcome and some not so welcome.  Relationships and responsibilities are changing as children leave home and aging parents require care or attention.   Careers wind down and we may be faced with a loss of purpose or direction for the future. Whether you are struggling with the challenges of the present, mired down by mistakes in your past, or excited about the prospects of the future, this Bible Study is for you.

    This eight week study will explore what God’s word says about midlife.  There is a brief study guide to be completed each week.  We will then gather together weekly to share in a time of laughter, learning, and prayer as we support each other as women.  This is not a video study, but a time of reading / discussion of God’s word.  

  • Joy in the Morning - Breaking Free

    Wednesdays, 9:00-11:00 a.m., beginning September 12

    We will study "Breaking Free" by Beth Moore.  

    Beth considers Breaking Free her life message. This in-depth Bible study leads you through Isaiah 61:1-4 to discover the transforming power of Christian freedom by drawing parallels between the captive Israelites and the spiritual strongholds in our lives. First released in 1999, this updated edition includes 11 new video teaching messages, along with updated Bible study content and testimonies from women like you who have found freedom from their personal captivity. No matter what life stage you're in or struggles you're going through, if where you are isn't where you want to be, don't stay there. Break free.
