“It is because the West has lost its sense of community that small groups are springing up here and there, trying to refind it.”–Jean Vanier.
Vanier, founder of the L’Arche communities serving the disabled, is steeped in the practical mechanics of building community. His classic, Community and Growth, provides a detailed framework for establishing and maintaining true community. If you have thought of starting or participating in a small group, join with us on Monday evenings in room 116 at 7:30pm as we delve into this handbook of “life together.” Copies of Vanier’s book are available online (be sure to get the 1989 edition). Drop in anytime your schedule allows–there is much to discuss! For more information contact Katherine Owen at [email protected]or Francie Mizell at [email protected].
Wednesdays at 5:30-7:00 pm in Room 106
Do you ever feel like life has gotten so busy, you just need a moment to come up for air? If so, we encourage you to drop in to Breathe. This casual small group is designed to be a break for busy parents whose children participate in Wednesday night activities (including Kid’s Club and our children’s music program). We eat, we fellowship and we devote time to growing our relationships–with friends, with family, and with God. Brief devotionals and video Bible studies segue into open conversation and even the occasional board game. Every few weeks, we gather at a local restaurant to kick back and relax. Come once, or come often, but plan to come–on your own or with a spouse. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of your week! For more information contact Heidi Williams at [email protected].
Small groups meet each week for youth in middle school and high school, gathering around common ages and genders. Learn more about these small groups on the Youth Ministry page.
