Small Groups

Love God. Love People. Serve the World.

We are thankful you've found a place to belong here at Gracewood Community Church!

Our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by intentionally doing life together in order to Love God, Love People, and Serve the World.

Because loving people  is such an intricate part of who we are as Christ followers, we believe everyone should be involved in a small group.
Here at Gracewood we have several small group options. Some of our groups meet in the homes and some at church periodically throughout different seasons, and most recently we're meeting online due to social distancing guidelines. We hope you can find a group that's right for you! 

Meet the winter session groups!

We are excited to provide multiple opportunities for all age groups to get connected this winter! There are some online and in-person options. Please know that all online studies will be conducted over Zoom and all in-person studies will be held in the Auditorium with social distancing guidelines followed and facial coverings required.

Women's In-Person Study

Mondays at 7pm
February 8th-March 15th
Embark on a six-week journey to letting go of the things you can't control, finding the strength to hang on tighter to those you can- and finally learning how to tell the difference.

If you're like most women, you have been trying to hang on tight so you can get life right. Jennifer Dukes Lee has written this Bible study work especially for you. Over the course of this in-person study, we hope to discover a  journey that isn't about "doing less"; it's about becoming more of who God has truly created you to be.

Optional $13 It's All Under Control Book and $10 Study Guide is available to purchase. Links for these will be sent in the registration confirmation email.

Whisper Online Study

Tuesdays at 7pm
February 2nd-February 23rd
Many people have a tough time believing that God still speaks. We’ve learned from Scripture that God spoke to His people in ancient times and in mysterious ways, but how do we hear His voice now? The truth is God still communicates with His people, but He often speaks in a whisper—not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.

In this 4-session series we'll meet over Zoom while Mark Batterson teaches what it means for Christians to discern the voice of God in their lives. He will introduce the seven love languages of God—each of them unique and entirely divine. By learning to tune in and decipher each language, Mark equips believers to hear God’s guidance and grow closer to Him.

God is speaking. Do you know how to listen?

Optional free personal study PDF download. Optional $15 "Whisper" book is available for purchase. Links for those sent in the registration confirmation email.

Connect Online Study

Wednesdays at 7pm
February 3rd-
These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they're attacked on every front. It's all happened at warp speed, leaving many of us spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment? And is there any hope for the next generation?

In this 5-session series over Zoom, Larry Osborne introduces us to a man forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. This man faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of a world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. That man was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only survived, but thrived.

Optional free personal study PDF download. Optional $18 Thriving in Babylon book by Larry Osborne available for purchase. Links for those will be sent in the registration confirmation email.
