IMG_2556Small Groups are the best way to get to know people better and have some fun! In the past, many people have experienced great growth through exploring truth, especially the Truth, with peers and mentors in these groups. We strongly encourage everyone to try them out. If you don’t like one, you are absolutely free to try each one until you find the one that fits.

Small groups meet at the Wesley House (1904 Guadalupe St.) unless otherwise mentioned.

Great Bible Adventure (GBA)

Have you ever attempted to read through the Bible and got lost somewhere in Leviticus? Do you have a desire to know and understand what the Bible has to say and its relevance for today’s world? This group is perfect for you! As a group we’ll be working through the Bible in a year, encouraging one another, praying for one another, and having an altogether fantastic time. Reading the Bible individually through the week (20-30 minutes per day) sets us all up for great discussion, fellowship, and prayer at our weekly meetings. No previous reading or knowledge of the Bible is necessary. Whether you’ve yet to venture out on a walk of faith or you’re wondering where to go next, Genesis is a great place to start.
Meeting time: Wednesdays at 7-9PM

God Is…

There are many words that are used to describe God in both Scripture and contemporary settings, but what do these tell us about who God is? In turn, what does it mean that we are made in God’s likeness? Let’s hang out this summer as we explore God’s character and what we may or may not have in common with God!

Meeting time: Tuesdays 8pm

Alpha

Alpha is a non-pressure, information and discussion group about the basics of Christianity. Do you have doubts, hesitations, or concerns about the Christian faith? Is it boring, irrelevant, or untrue? We will discuss these and other questions such as: Who is Jesus? Why did he have to die? How and why do I read the Bible? If you want to re-kindle and strengthen your faith, are just curious as to what Jesus is all about, or have outright objections to this faith…no problem! Just swing by the Wesley house Tuesday nights for free food and great discussions!
Meeting time: Will begin in the Fall
Location: Wesley House

Who Created God?

An in-depth exploration of all of the challenging and troublesome questions that are commonly asked of Christians and by Christians. We’ll address topics like: “Do you really believe the world was created in six days?”, “Why would God allow suffering and evil?”, and, of course, “If God created the universe, who created God?” Our goal is to provide you with a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the true nature of Christianity, so that you might feel more equipped to discuss these kinds of questions with friends and family. This group is open to anyone, regardless of your present beliefs or level of confidence.
Meeting time: Will begin in the Fall
