Everyone needs “go to” people in their lives—friends to share your times of joy, and to lift you up in times of need. Being part of a Small Group provides the opportunity to grow in faith and develop these kinds of relationships. While every effort is made to place people in groups when requests are made, many Small Groups take a break over the summer, so it may not be possible to connect with a group until they start meeting again in the fall.

Small Group Resources


What does it really mean to be a disciple? This Small Group curriculum answers that question in a simple, four-session format. You’ll gain a clearer understanding of discipleship using this new resource. All Small Groups are encouraged to go through Equipped at some point. For a digital copy click on the link below.

Equipped: Following Jesus Monday through Saturday


This is where the rubber meets the road—how do you and your Small Group members live out biblical teaching in community? Study Guides for each message series from September to April are available in a PDF under our Resource tab and will help you get the most out of weekend messages.


This one-session course is for anyone interested in digging deeper into the Bible. Whether your Bible has been sitting unused, or you’ve been diligently studying the Bible for years, you’ll get something out of Open Up the Book. How do you access this valuable information? Schedule a teacher to come to your Small Group.

Contact Tucker Anderson to schedule one of our teachers to come to your Small Group.
