Bible Basics - Wednesdays, 6:30 pm
Have you let your Bible knowledge lapse a bit? This group hopes to help that. We will
start out by looking at familiar stories & characters we may have learned about as a
child in Sunday school but maybe haven’t read since, for example, Ruth, Daniel,
Jonah & John the Baptist. No prior Bible study experience is necessary. After the
first few meetings, the group will decide together what it wants to study next. For more
information, please contact Mark Jones ( firstname.lastname@example.org, 563-332-9314) or
Julie Grothusen (email@example.com, 563-359-6607).
New Small Group: Women’s Non-fiction Book Club
First Meeting Date - Tuesday, September 4 at 6:30 pm
Come join us for fellowship and discussion! This new small group, led by
Kristine Oswald, will be a
space for women of all ages to discuss non-fiction books. At our first meeting we’ll share ideas for
books to focus on, then each month we’ll pick a book to read and discuss. Snacks will be provided.
Please join us for our first meeting: Tuesday, September 4 at 6:30 pm in the Parlor. RSVP to the church
office ( firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can plan accordingly. If you’d like to come but can’t make
the first meeting, please let us know!
Small groups can have a variety of different focus areas, but ultimately they
need to be based in
showing Christian love to one another. The focus of a small group can range from Spiritual
Development, Christian Education & Worship, Support Groups, Education & Training or sharing the
love of Christ through Fellowship activities. Small groups can be ongoing or have a finite existence ands
can be initiated and led by any church member. They can also be initiated by Staff, Session/Deacon or
other FPC committees.
