For more information on any of the following groups, contact Kelly Dickson unless otherwise noted.
Spring Small Group Questions
Meet once or twice a month.
The purpose of Fellowship/ Mariner's Groups is to bring people into closer relationships by offering smaller fellowship groups (ships) and provide meaningful social activities which encourage our Christian faith. Mariners also provide service and/or leadership to the church.
Study Groups - Navigators
Usually meet weekly or bi-weekly
The purpose is learning together by studying the Bible or other discipleship resources.
Formed around gender-based, deep friendships, these groups are a place you can be you and be known and loved.
Frigates are missional groups focused on a mission or cause. If you get to know people best when working on a project or solving a problem, missional groups may be the place for you.
Group meet monthly, though they can meet more frequently, if desired. The purpose of Support Groups is to create a safe place focused on a particular issue or topic. Examples include: Parenting Groups, Cancer Sufferers, Addictions, Alcoholics Anonymous, etc. Support Groups may or may not have a biblical component, though they need to be recognized distinctly as a Christian group. Generally, support groups are not limited in size, but they can be kept small at times to build trust. Support Group participants are encouraged to also be involved in Community Groups, Bible studies, or adult Christian education courses for their theological edification. For more information about the various types of Support Groups, contact our Associate Pastor for Congregational Care.
Prayer and/or Service Groups
Prayer groups gather for the purpose of prayer, meditation, and contemplation, with regards to one’s relationship with God, the world, the church, the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, and other people. Many of these groups will also be involved in some type of service or missions project, serving the local or regional community in the name of Jesus Christ.
Prayer and service group participants are encouraged to also be involved in Community Groups, Bible studies, or adult Christian education courses for their theological edification.
