Small Group Night

Small Group Night this coming year will consist of two sessions. The fall session begins on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 and concludes in December of 2019. The winter session begins on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 and concludes in April of 2020. These nights will be open to adults (18 plus) in the congregation and friends of our members as well. We will be meeting (once a month) on the second Tuesday night of each month from 5:30-7:30 pm. 

The format for the evening will be: 

5:30-6:00 pm—Dinner 

6:00-6:30 pm—Large group time with Pastor Mark 

6:30-7:30 pm—Small group time 

We will gather in the Fellowship Hall with the evening meal provided by our wonderful cooks Pat and Sara (a nominal fee of $5 is encouraged). Pastor Mark will lead the large group teaching time from 6:00-6:30 pm on Paul’s letter to the Colossians (fall session) and then on Paul’s letter to the Galatians (winter session). We will then form into small groups following the large group teaching time.
