Starting in January 2018, Lara and I will be hosting a small group at our house.  This page is for our small group members to be able to access study sheets and devotionals connected with the study.  Feel free to borrow them and use these resources as you see fit.

Meeting Schedule

This schedule may be adjusted a bit, but generally, we are going to meet every week but the 4th week of the month.  On weeks 1, 3 and 5 (when there is a 5th week) we’ll be meeting all together.  On the 2nd week, we will be meeting in men’s and women’s groups.  On the 4th week, we will be on break.  During those break time, we will encourage small group members to get together with each other for fellowship or to engage in a community outreach activity.  Here is a rough calendar for the semester:
