SMALL GROUPS

Be known. Grow.

Small groups are exactly what they sound like: small gatherings that help us get to know each other and learn to look like Christ together. This is where we grow. This is where we become known. Small groups are the greatest catalyst for living a life with Christ at the center.

You're invited.

HAVE AN IDEA FOR A GROUP?

Apply to lead a small group! Share your hobby, gather for some lighthearted community, meet with others in a similar life stage, or dig deep into a Bible study.

ALPHA

Led by Jenna Greenwell

Alpha is a series of conversations about things we all question in life: Why do bad things happen to good people? What's the purpose of life? What's next?
If you're looking for a judgment-free space to ask hard questions and share your own opinion, there's a place for you.

Fee: None

OFFERED FALL 2024

COME, HOLY SPIRIT

Sundays from July 14th to August 4th @ 6:30-8pm
Led by Jenna Greenwell
Location: Vineyard Church

This four-week course addresses how we maintain a vibrant relationship with Jesus and turn that relationship into service for the sake of others. How do I hear God's voice? How do I know what God is doing with me and those around me? How does God transform me so I might truly love those who are hard to love? Using both group sessions and labs in the real world, this course aims to give participants confidence in day to day connection with the Holy Spirit and the people around them. Note: This course combines two former Core Discipleship Courses: Life in the Spirit and Doin' the Stuff.
