Live the life as missions and evangelism becomes a part of everyday life for Christ follower as the natural response of living out Acts 2:42

Small-Group Discipleship is an opportunity for you to be formed and shaped in your spiritual journey along with fellow Christ-followers. (i.e. be the church). We want to see every person in a healthy Small Group.

These men’s, women’s, and co-ed small groups meet throughout the week at various locations. We also offer childcare on Sunday and Wednesday evenings for parents of small children. We have four semesters scheduled for 2021 but you may start a small group at any time.

Our church is passionate about getting people in groups and getting groups healthy. Our Small Groups are 3 or more people who meet together regularly to live an Acts 2:42 life.

  • Follow Me - a six-week study: When Jesus says, “Follow Me,” it’s not an invitation to say a prayer; it’s a summons to lose our lives. In this much-anticipated follow-up to Radical, Pastor David Platt challenges the traditions of cultural Christianity and reintroduces us to Jesus and his most simple request, "Follow Me."
  • Disciple Path: The Truth – a six-week study: The Truth Bible Study Book helps disciples answer the question: "What does a disciple believe?" Many people will claim Christianity, but do they really know what they believe? Do they know the doctrines of the faith? The Truth challenges group members to take a deeper dive into six core doctrines: God as triune creator, the reality of sin, the Person and work of Christ, the kingdom of God, and the Church. This disciple-making resource emphasizes practice and mentoring for group settings of multiple sizes to explore the primary doctrines of a disciple of Jesus.
  • Philippians – an ongoing study on the Book of Philippians led by Jim Wilkins

Philippians Bible Study

How would it make you feel if the Apostle Paul wrote a letter just to you?  A letter about finding Joy in the middle of the most difficult or challenging circumstances in your life?  A letter which explains not only how to acquire this Joy, but how to live in it daily to bring God great glory?  This study is a lecture style presentation with time for questions or discussion after every lesson.  It is designed to cover the whole letter in 20 lessons.
