Sunday Morning Small Groups

Our students meet together in small groups at 10:45 every Sunday morning, and this is really where church begins to feel like family. The students meet with their grade level for a time of study in our awesome small group program. We study topics relevant to students, and we use a one of a kind system that rotates each grade through a different topic and teacher every 10 weeks. This way, you never hear the same thing twice, or get used to where you are. The kids love it and so do we. Below is a list of the current 10-week classes for each grade.

 

Current 10 Week Studies

These small group studies began on August 11th, 2019


 7th/8th Grade Girls: “1 Corinthians” – Lauren & Savannah

Christianity calls us to sacrifice instead of living for oneself. We have to choose one or the other—we can’t do both. The Christians in Corinth tried to live the Christian life in a worldly way. In this study, we look into the messy lives of the Corinthians and dive into Paul’s words to the conflicted church. We’ll see how the truth of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives.

 

7th/8th Grade Guys: “Judges” – Mr. Luke & Mr. Toxie

The book of Judges cracks a window into depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its identity and relationship to its God. In this study, we will look into the book of Judges to shine a light onto the muddy waters of human rebellion. We will work through each chapter unpacking the truth of God’s grace in the midst of human wickedness, and show how only the divine can redeem the fallen.

 


9th Grade: “Starting Point” – Brayn & Joel

This class is designed for 9th graders as they begin their high school journey. We will be discussing the foundations of our faith and address 8 common obstacles of the Christian life and how to overcome them.

 

 

 


 10th Grade: “Respectable Sins” – Steve and Stephanie
The Christian journey is a life of practiced godliness, but too often we overlook or minimize sins that, while corrosive and destructive to ourselves and those around us, are overshadowed by more flashy, headline-grabbing sins. In this study we will grow in our understanding of sin and commit to a life of holiness by examining patterns of behavior we often accept as normal, rather than as violations of God’s law.

11th Grade: “James” – Scott & Kristen
In this study we will work through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life. We will be discussing the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. 

12th Grade: “BIG Questions”- Kevin & Peabody

It’s not doubt or hard questions that are toxic to faith. It’s silence. Teenagers are often tired of vague, superficial, or nonexistent answers to their tough questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. Just when they’re capable of diving into the deep end of their faith, all too often the church keeps them splashing around in shallow waters. This study will allow the students to ask the hard tough questions, and we will dive into scripture to get the answers.
