Small Groups

Studying together. digging deeper.

These small group gatherings are a way for people to grow closer and have more of a sense of community together. As our ministry grows, we find ourselves with a great opportunity to reach a broader spectrum of students across the campus at Missouri S&T, however we do not want to lose the intimacy of gathering together in small groups to be a part of each other’s lives. This depth in the Scriptures and in each other’s lives allows you to pass along prayer requests (either as confidential or public requests) and lift up and encourage those who may be struggling through life.

Getting Ready-Mondays @ 6:30pm

Ben & Shandi Harris

Headed towards marriage? This small group is open to couples or singles, and will cover much of what is often discussed in premarital counseling in a group format. We will look at things like communication, conflict, family of origin and more from a biblical perspective.The purpose of this group is to help us understand a little better how God uniquely created us, and what it looks like to walk in Godly unity with another person.

 

When Jesus Preached: A study of the sermon on the mount-Mondays @ 6:30pm

Nicholas Lewis

The Sermon on the Mount is one of the most recognized Scriptures throughout history. We have a lot of familiarity with the verses pulled out of the sermon and even many non-Christians know some of the principles by heart but what does the Sermon on the Mount actually mean? We plan to dig deep into this portion of Scripture and really study what’s going on and how this sermon describes a profound truth about the nature of salvation and following Christ throughout life. Sometimes the most familiar scripture to us is the least understood. 

 

The Chosen-Mondays @ 6:30pm

Carter Crews

We will be watching the chosen series. After each episode we will be taking a deeper dive into some of the passages that correlate with them. I’m excited to see the characters of the Bible and study then in a more personal way! 

 

Elephants in the church-Mondays @ 7pm

Nick Wetzel & Brandon Wetzel

This study dives into controversial topics within the church that are often avoided in our discussions. From same-sex attraction to racism to alcohol and marijuana, this group provides the opportunity to learn what the Bible has to say on these topics..

Conquerors is an accountability group structured around helping guys break the addiction cycle of sexual sin by learning how to seek eternal gratification rather than temporary earthly pleasures.

A study of the epistles of James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude. We will all individually study the books and then come together as a group to discuss what these authors who spent so much time with Christ on Earth have to say about our faith that we share. We are excited to study with you!

 

Godly Identity-Tuesdays @ 6:30pm

Alex Lindsay

Have you ever wondered what people mean when they say “Trust in God, put your identity in Him”? This small group will focus on what it practically means to have your Identity in God, and how to put God in the forefront of your academics, relationships, friendships, careers, and more!

 

Trusting god when life gets hard-Tuesdays @ 7pm

Caleb Kretzinger

Unfortunately throughout our lives, the going will get tough. Fortunately, we aren’t the first to go through this battle and we aren’t doing it alone. Through studying Biblical stories of hardships, we will study how to bring God along in our season of hardship and continue to grow through the tough times.

 

Celebration of Disciplines-Tuesdays @ 7pm

Joel Schott

This group will study (and practice!) Spiritual Disciplines, which are ways of putting ourselves before God to allow Him to transform us and make us into the image of Christ. They are a means of growing spiritually and developing a deeper relationship with God. The group will study the book Celebration of Discipline, spending a week reading a chapter about a Discipline and the next week practicing that Discipline.

 

Praise with Understanding-Tuesdays @ 7pm

Jason Courtney

Like most things in our Christian walk, the Bible has a clear outline and instruction on how we are to worship in a way that pleases God. In this small group, we will start with an in-depth study of what that outline is and analyzing how Biblical instruction on praise applies to modern worship services, beginning with Psalm 47:6-7.  Once we have established our understanding, we will pick songs as a group to look at under the Biblical microscope and determine what place they might have in a congregational worship service. There will also be time devoted to worshiping as a small group each week.

 

Made Different (ladies only)-Wednesdays @ 6:30pm

Moriah Hix

Conquerors-wednesdays @ 7pm

The Backcountry (guys only)-Wednesdays @ 7pm

Jacob Stemme

In this men’s only group we will be discussing biblical masculinity while reading through John Eldridge’s Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret to a Man’s Soul. Just like the backcountry this small group will foster an environment that will challenge you and encourage spiritual growth and self-discovery. Come with me into the backcountry and see what God has in store. 

 

After God’s own heart: a study of the life of david-Wednesdays @ 7pm

Rachel Nielsen

Like us, David was far from perfect, yet he is known as “a man after God’s own heart”. In this study we will be discovering what God means by this by examining the accounts of David’s life as well as the references to David throughout the Old and New Testament. The goals of this study are to learn how our hearts can be more like God’s while we become more familiar with the accounts of and references to David.
