Have you ever tried to navigate a long difficult journey by yourself? Ever tried to play ball by yourself? Ever tried to row a large boat with one oar? Life is like this when we try to walk the journey alone, play the game of life by ourselves, or fight the currents of life without help. God never intended for anyone to do life alone. That’s where the small groups at Blue Grass Church provide support. Small Group life helps us see God’s road ahead more clearly, feel more connected and supported, receive more guidance, and just basically have more joy!
The goals of Blue Grass small groups are these:
Pursue intimacy with the Lord.
Pursue community with other believers in Christ.
Pursue influence with the world.
Sometimes the message in the Bible doesn’t become clear without someone to add their understanding. Sometimes when trials come, our small groups provide the help of childcare or meals or emotional support that we need. Small groups also challenge us to think outside ourselves and pursue mission in the world.
Blue Grass Church has over 27 small groups that meet on a variety of times and days of each week. (If they meet on Sunday morning, you might hear someone call them Sunday School classes.) We have groups of young singles, young married couples, older married couples, seniors, women, men, and mixed gender groups. Some study contemporary studies they find online; some study books of the Bible; some use Christian DVD series such as Beth Moore, Liz Curtis Higgs, John Ortberg, Timothy Keller, Cloud and Townsend, Bill Hybels, and Jim Cymbala, just to name a few. Many groups meet year round; some meet only during the school calendar. Some week weekly, others twice monthly. Some meet in homes; others at church or across Cemetery Road at the House of Hope.
Come and visit with one or more of our groups. Find that home for your heart where you can be yourself and experience the Body of Christ—the church with arms and hands and hearts!
