Many churches have small groups that are designed to study the same areas, but we realize that not everyone is in the same situation in their lives and where they are growing in the Lord. While some may need to focus on foundational areas in Scripture, others may need to focus on how they can better reach the lost, manage their finances, or even to learn how to simply love their neighbor as themselves.
Our Reach Out Small Groups are designed to offer a variety of areas where you can grow in the Lord through the Word of God by the power of the Holy Spirit. We invite you to prayerfully consider and join the right small group that God is leading you to! This 6-8 week commitment will be a life changing growing experience, and you can contact the church office or sign up in the foyer to join. Below is our list of small groups.
If you have ever seen a house that has fallen down as the result of a faulty foundation, you know how important it is to have a firm foundation. This same principle is true for a Christian’s life, in that the truths found in the Bible are to be the foundation blocks for our lives. The purpose of this course is to establish the Christian believer in the six elementary teachings of Christ as outlined in Hebrews chapter six. If you are new to the church and/or would like to get involved in ministry, this course is for you.

A Study on Forgiveness
Forgiveness is about healing yourself, not saying “it’s OK”. Sometimes we find ourselves needing to extend or receive forgiveness, and when our hurt is deep that forgiveness doesn’t come easy. We will look through the Bible to discover how God shows mercy, and how choosing forgiveness can free us from the past and move us toward all that God intends for us.

The Story: A Narrative Study
For students grades 6-12. This series is a unique look at the Bible told as a story from start to finish. Using a chronological, abridged edition of the Bible called The Story, this study will take students from Genesis to Revelation using a seamless narrative, without the usual verse references and in a novel-like format with chapters that span many of the Bible’s stories. Teens will be encouraged by interacting with God’s Word in a new way that is more immediate and easier to engage with. This series is a part of FORGE Youth Ministries.
