During the Week
In addition to Bible study on Sunday morning, there are small groups which meet regularly during the week to study God’s word, pray, and fellowship.
The Covenant Fellowship, formerly the Covenant Class, meets one evening every month for fellowship, prayer, and open conversation. We cherish the opportunity to grow in faith and friendship by sharing our life celebrations and concerns, and by reflecting together, through the lens of faith, on the challenges and needs we see in the world. For more information, please contact John Baxley.
Intercessory Prayer Group

This group meets together weekly to pray together for concerns and celebrations.

Home Groups Gather in October for Holy Conversations on Racism
What does the term “racism” mean? What is “institutional racism”? How should we as Christians respond to the question of racism in our community and in our nation? Discussions about these questions are taking place across the country. In this, the 400th anniversary of the arrival in America of the first enslaved persons from West Africa, this conversation is vital for our church’s expression of bold love and boundless compassion ‘for such a time as this. “ If you would like to join a discussion that does not simply repeat the conversations talking place on our larger culture, but seeks instead to help us discern the way of discipleship, please plan to participate in one of the upcoming home small group discussions with Joani and David Hughes (Saturday, October 5 half day retreat), Richard Groves and Nikki Byers (on their front porch meeting weekly for four weeks beginning Thursday, October 10) and Chris and Joy Gambill (at their home meeting weekly for four weeks beginning Sunday, October 6). Group size will be 12-15 participants. We will use the book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo to help launch this discussion. This book has been on The New York Times bestseller list for 52 weeks straight and can be purchased on Amazon. We will have a sign-up for the groups on a sheet right outside the Ammons-Lolley, or you can contact Nikki Byers at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up as well.
There are a variety of other groups that meet independently throughout the year centered around prayer, fellowship, topical studies, and book studies.
