Sunday morning groups
10-11 a.m. between the two worship services. Learning groups meet throughout the buildings.
Try out one of the many Sunday morning adult learning groups. They include Bible studies and studies of books on various issues. Some are lecture style and others are mostly discussion. Some are made up of adults in similar life-stages, while others are inter-generational. Visit around until you find a group that feels right for you and a topic that interests you.
These groups are not intended to be permanent landing places. Rather, we invite you to check back here from time to time to see what various groups are discussing and to choose a topic that interests you.
Small Community Groups
We believe that growth in Christian maturity happens as we share life together in groups that trust each other, pray for each other, and hold each other accountable. Such groups must be made up of people who are committed to vulnerability, truth, and confidentiality.
Community groups are generally smaller (10-12 people) than Sunday morning groups and they focus on growth through sharing life and faith in openly honest and strictly confidential settings. They meet on Sunday evenings and weekday evenings, in homes and at the church building.
We have men’s groups, women’s groups, and groups of both men and women. Groups are being formed all the time. You may begin by joining an "open" group and later participating in a smaller, more intimate group, or you may want to begin with a smaller group. Contact Linda Judson to get started making life-changing connections through a group: 404-849-4941.
Koinonia Groups are inter-generational small groups of about 8-12 adults. "Koinonia" is a Greek word appearing in the Greek New Testament 19 times and is usually translated as "fellowship." To learn more about Fall 2016 Koinonia groups and to sign up, go here.
We provide space for a number of support groups, most of which are based on the Twelve Steps. The following groups meet all year round, even during holidays when regular church activities do not meet. Among the groups that meet here are: Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Caregiver’s Support Group, Grief Support Group, Emotions Anonymous, Crime Victims Support Group and Sex Addicts Anonymous. See Support Group meetings times and locations here.
These intergenerational ministries foster spiritual development among women and men through study, service, and mutual support. They are oriented primarily around events and opportunities for service provided from time to time throughout the year.
Adult Music Groups
These two choral ensembles are open to anyone who is interested in singing. No audition is required. Singers are expected to be present for rehearsal, however. The music rehearsal suite is on the second floor of the Sanctuary Building, S226.
The Sanctuary Choir rehearses from 6:30–7:45 p.m. on Wednesday nights. For the convenience of choir members with children, the rehearsal is scheduled at the same time as the Children’s Ministry Wednesday night activities.
The Adult Vocal Ensemble (Avé) is a smaller group than the Sanctuary Choir. They rehearse from 7:45–8:15 p.m. on Wednesday nights.
Senior Adult Groups
Senior adults are a vital part of the life of the church. Seniors get involved and contribute through spiritual renewal, service and fellowship. They are encouraged and assisted through the care ministry and peer support. There are groups focused for adults 50 and older which offer opportunities for travel, one-day outings, fellowship, education, and service. Learn more.
