Closer Together

Why Join A Small Group?

Small groups isn't just your traditional bible study. It's about building strong relationships with people that share a common interest. It's about growing and holding each other accountable. We are all looking to strengthen our relationship with Christ; why not grow together with your friends, family and those that share a similar path in life.

"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” 

Matthew 18:20 (NKJV)

Apologetic, Not Sorry

with Reginald D. Wilburn

Not Available for the Fall semester
1 Peter 3:15 tells us to be ready to give an answer to defend the faith, but what does that even look like? In today's society, there are so many questions on if God exists, questions about creation to the objectivity of morality. This small group aims to address the many questions: those that a non-believer might have, the questions that might be hard to ask in a church setting, and even some philosophical ones that may not have crossed your mind before today.  Our goal is to change the hearts of non-believers by stimulating their minds and equip believers with the tools necessary to defend their faith and make more disciples of Christ.

Purposeful Poetry

with April Felton

While we engage in these situations, we feel that family and friends are unable to help due to their lack of understanding.  During this small group, we will learn how to express our thoughts/feelings onto paper.  We will create healing poems based upon these emotions. The process of healing will prepare us to become better servants and to be used purposely by Jesus!

Fishers of Men and Women! 

with: Elders Carles and Sharrone Ingram

At times in our lives as believers in Christ, we are not always certain of what to do and just even how to do those uncertain things.  On a dreary night out at sea on the Sea of Galilee, seven believers of Christ did not know what to do, and Jesus appeared to them to tell them what and how to do it.  Yes, those believers were the disciples who had even witnessed Jesus crucified and resurrected from the grave!  We are now His disciples and often at times have that very same difficulty of dealing with life’s uncertainty.  Jesus stood on the shore of that sea to tell the disciples to cast their net, and they listened and pulled out a multitude of fish - more than they could have even imagined!  Christ wants us to do the very same that He was instructing the disciples – trust Him.  Discipleship means following the ways of another, hence putting our trust in Jesus even when it doesn’t seem that what He may tell us to do will yield a great deal of return.  This small group study will explore what it means to cast our net deeper into the waters of faith and allow God to have His way.  It is in this that we can be the true disciples and witnesses for Christ in the Earth, trusting in God and sharing our faith with others!
