Discipleship GROUPS

God reveals Himself through His Word, by His Holy Spirit, and through His people. Sunday mornings and throughout the week, we gather in groups to seek the Lord by studying the Bible. As we seek Him, God reveals His love for us and teaches us how to live in relationship with Him and one another.

Each group's teacher selects their study and teaches either through a book of the Bible or by using LifeWay discipleship materials. We encourage you to visit one of our groups listed below if you do not already attend one!

Our church's Discipleship Groups typically offer three different studies with various emphases. You can read a brief overview of each study below or click the photo's above to receive more detail on the publisher's page.


Text: Some groups prefer to study the text in its context so they can properly interpret it and apply it in their context today. Explore The Bible is a line of ongoing and short-term Bible studies with text as the starting point. The studies take a group through entire books of the Bible and focus on major themes and application. In book after book and passage after passage, men, women, boys, and girls, systematically explore their way through the books of the Bible.

Group(s) using Explore The Bible: Greg Apple, Mike & JoAnn Hampton, James Handley, and Barry & Donna Nealy


Theology: Some groups love studying theology so they understand a particular doctrine in light of the whole counsel of Scripture. The Gospel Project has theology as its starting point. It helps group members understand how a particular doctrine is threaded through the hundreds of stories in the Bible. It demonstrates how the Bible is one big story of God’s redemption of humanity through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Life: Some groups prefer topical Bible studies. The group members place a high value on knowing God’s Word so they can apply it to their lives. Bible Studies For Life has a life starting point that guides the creation of those studies. Sessions are carefully crafted to address life issues group members regularly face. Bible Studies For Life uses five key discussion questions to guide the group experience and to create conversations among group members.
