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)

    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.

     

  • Fire by Night - What Matters Most (Women)

    Mondays, 6:00-7:15 p.m., beginning January 14

    What Matters Most, by  Karen Ehman, is a 7 session study which incorporates a short video lesson with discussion. Through study of the ever-relevant Letter of Philippians you will get to know Jesus on a deeper level, turn your worries into worship, and develop gospel-centered tools for navigating relational conflict and thriving in Christian love.

    The world has always been full of trials, disappointments, temptations, fractured friendships, and financial hardships. Yet Paul’s letter to the Philippians claims we can discover contentment and joy in the midst of it all by prioritizing what matters most—Christ.

     

  • Joy in the Morning - Living Beyond Yourself (Women)

    Wednesdays, 9:00-11:00 a.m., beginning January 16

    We will study "Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit" by Beth Moore.  

    Living Beyond Yourself is a detailed study that explores the book of Galatians.  Beth walks participants through each trait listed in the fruit and encourages women to know the freedom of a Spirit-filled life. Through this study, Beth challenges you to develop the fruit by maintaining an intimate relationship with the Spirit of God.  A Spirit-filled life truly results in living beyond yourself.
