Weekly Small Groups

Being part of a small group working through questions about faith and life is an important part of spiritual growth. If you aren’t already part of one, this is your time!

Our small groups have moved from meeting in the building to meeting by Zoom or outdoors (masked and distanced). Check out the current offerings and sign up! All groups are open and ready to welcome you in your faith journey. If you have questions about getting started, contact Pastor Sandra Cox. 

Note: If you’d like to schedule an on-site meeting for your small group, please contact the church office to make arrangements.

Soul Reset | Sundays @ 4pm

Pastor Sandra and Patricia Marcus will lead a six week small group study of Junius Dotson’s Soul Reset on Sundays in person at the church from 4:00-5:00pm. In his book, Dotson describes the process he used to do “a hard stop of chronic busyness; a deep look inward and an intentional look to God; and a new, more holistic journey forward that more closely resembles an abundant life into which Jesus calls his disciples.” If you are ready to move from chronic busyness to a more holistic and meaningful life, please join this group!

Mondays

Bible 101

Bible 101 | Mondays @ 6:30pm Sept. 13 – Oct. 18

Host: Rev. Marilyn Gregory

Back by popular demand, this small group will begin with the basics about the Bible: how it came to be, what’s in it, and how we can read it as faithful people. If you have always felt like you needed a good introduction to get you started, this is the small group for you! Rev. Marilyn Gregory, a retired United Methodist pastor, will bring her deep knowledge of and love for our sacred scriptures as she leads this study to help you get a handle on how both the Old Testament and the New Testament shape our identity as God’s people. You don’t want to miss this opportunity! We’ll meet via Zoom from 6:30-8:00 pm September 13-October 18.

Rev. Sandra Cox, Pastor of Faith Formation

Women’s Study Group | Wednesdays @ 1pm

Host: Sandra Cox

This group explores what it means to learn and grow as faithful women in our homes, work, and relationships.

Is this the season for you to make your spiritual life a priority? Are you looking for an intentional focus on God and your own journey of faith? Is it time for a “reset?” That is precisely why Junius Dotson wrote this book, Soul Reset. In this small group, we will explore how to clear away the clutter and find a way to make time for what really matters.

We meet via Zoom from 1:00-2:30 pm.
