You were designed by God to live in community. We believe we grow the most when we are in relationship to one another. Sunday worship gatherings are great, but it is difficult get to know one another on a deeper level in rows. Sitting in someone’s living room is a much better environment to grow and share. We begin new community groups three times a year.
Spring Groups: January-May
Summer Groups: June-August
Fall Groups: September-December
Summer Semester 2023 Groups
Beginning the various dates in June 2023
Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater than we imagine
Wednesdays at 6 PM, Larsen Home (Emerald Mountain), begins June 14
We often talk about grace, but do we really understand it? Grace politely occupies a phrase in a hymn and fits nicely on a church sign. It never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no? This group will dive deeper into what it means to be changed by grace. God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you.. Facilitated and hosted by Rutorrestt and Jill Larsen.
Young Couples with Kids (Topic TBA)
Topic TBA. Facilitated by Zane & Jordan Kelly and Matthew & Brooke Delk. This group is child friendly and perfect for young families.
Being A Man of God
Wednesdays at 6:30pm Hosted by Doug Vogel (Ridgefield Dr off Redland Rd). Begins June 7.
Our idea of manhood is often shaped more by media than God. Yet God has much to say about what it means to be a man after his heart. This group will be an encouragement for any guy who wants to grow in his walk with God and his relationship to others.. Facilitated by Doug Vogel and Jeff Wintle
Find Your People: Building Deep Community in a Lonely World
Tuesdays at 6 PM. Hosted by Nichole Fussell in Emerald Mountain. Begins June 6.
In a world that’s both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard. But science confirms that consistent, meaningful connection with others has a powerful impact on our well-being. We are meant to live known and loved. In this Bible study by Jeanie Allen, we’ll discuss simple ways to press through awkward to get to authentic in conversations, understand how conflict can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them, identify the type of friend you are and the types of friends you need, learn the five practical ingredients you need to have the type of friends you’ve always longed for.. Facilitated by Sarah Bradley and Nicole Fussell.
Present Over Perfect
Wednesdays 9:30am-10:30am in RHC Navigate Room, childcare available if interested. Please notify Christina. Group Begins June 7
Maintaining an image of perfection is exhausting, and it isn’t the way we’re meant to live. The Present Over Perfect Study will help you pull each other free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more. We will watch Shauna give a vulnerable account of what led her to begin this journey, and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us. Facilitated by Christina Clark.
Ladies: Testimony Meeting
Every 2nd Saturday of the month (June 10, July 8, Aug 12)
Ladies you are invited to come be apart of our Testimony group. We fellowship over a brunch potluck then listen to a speaker. These meetings are designed to have a designated speaker who shares her testimony, miracle, lesson learned or lesson learning. She shares her God story or one of her God stories with the rest of us. This is a wonderful way to hear the fruits of our sisters as we glorify and exalt the Lord together. Come be encouraged with us. Hosted at the home of Ann Vogel.
Resilient (55+ Group)
Monthly, beginning Sunday June 25 from 5-7 PM at RHC
We will gather for monthly experiences to connect and grow in this season of life. This first gathering will be at the church to share a meal, get to know one another, play some board/card games or just chat, and get your input on outings that interest you as a group. We will have a short devotion and share the vision of our group. Hope you will join us! Please register, bring your favorite finger food, and your favorite card or board game.
Summer Groups Are FULL
GriefShare’s 13 week video seminar and support group is a safe place to find practical advice and encouragement after the death of a friend or loved one. Videos feature respected experts, pastors, counselors and regular people who share their struggles and what has helped them. You’ll discover:
• How to handle overwhelming emotions of grief
• Where to find the strength to go on
• What to expect in the days to come
• How to grieve in a way that’s healthy and suited to you
• What the Bible says about death, grief, and Heaven
You will discuss how to apply insights to your own experience with a compassionate group or choose to sit quietly and process what you’re learning. Most attendees are glad that they came and sorry to see the semester come to an end. They walk away with a new group of friends and hope for the future.
