discipleship Groups

doing life together

The door is OPEN. Many people have never been in a small group. They aren't sure what it's about or what they have to do if they come. Our groups strive to be a "safe place" to meet people and learn about God from his Word. We realize many people visiting a D-Group are coming from various places in life and it can be intimidating to show up at some one's house they don't even know, much less show up for a "small group" meeting. However, we have yet to meet someone who was dedicated to a D-Group for a semester come and say they regret it.  So please get involved and remember that we need you as much as you need us as we grow deep in Christ. Find a group that fits you best today. 

D-Groups begin at 5:45 and end at 7:15

teachers: Brandon Flowers and Will Clark 

Study: Exodus

The book of Exodus is the story of God rescuing the children of Isreal from Egypt and forging a special relationship with them. Exodus is where we find the stories of the Ten Plagues, the first Passover, the parting of the Red Sea, and the Ten Commandments. The book gets it's name from the nation of Israel's mass emigration from Egypt, but that's only the first part of the story. This book follows Israel out of Egypt into the desert, where the nation is specifically aligned with God and where God first lays out his expectations for the people of Israel. To understand the most of the Old Testament, you'll need a basic understanding of what happens in Exodus.

Study: Matchless

We live in a world where there's a lot of confusion about Jesus. Too often people want to shape Him and His message to fit their personal needs or agendas. So how can we know the truth? Join Seamless author Angie Smith in this 8-session search for truth as she unfolds the story of our matchless Savior- His mission, miracles, and message.

Study: Unshakable Hope

This study will equip you to overcome difficult circumstances by keeping your focus on the hope found in the promises of Scripture. Whether it's heart disease or cancer, job failure or addiction, natural disasters or family disasters, mass murders or mental illness, there are so many reasons to be overwhelmed and hope can feel hard to come by. Now more than ever, we need the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God.

Study: Jesus Among Secular Gods 

As belief in the secular gods of atheism, hedonism, relativism, and humanism continues to grow, it’s more important than ever for believers to be able to defend and share the claims of Christ. Of course, this clash of worldviews is nothing new. Throughout Paul’s writing in the New Testament are references to elemental forces that seek to separate believers from the love and truth of Jesus.
Not only has the Christian worldview been devalued and dismissed by modern culture, but its believers are also openly ridiculed as irrelevant.
This study helps seekers explore the claims of Christ and provides Christians with the knowledge to articulate their faith that Jesus stands tall above all other gods.

Study: Colossians

The key religious theme throughout Colossians is the centrality and supremacy of Jesus. This theme of Christ's supremacy is woven throughout the fabric of the letter. We will do an in-depth study of the book as we look into the supremacy of Christ through the letter of Colossians.

Study: Anxious for Nothing
(This group will be waiting until after spring break to begin meeting)

Over the past few decades, studies have shown that Americans are the most anxious people in the world. We take the most medication for it, see doctors to treat it, and spend fortunes trying to relieve it. How have we let our fears get the better of us? In Anxious for Nothing, Max Lucado leads us to reflect on the promises of Philippians 4:4-8. This passage from Paul's epistle contains an antidote to anxiety that will help you develop a mindset of resilience. Rediscover the power of prayer and take control of your thoughts. You can rest in "the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding."
