Small Groups

Small Groups are a great place to enjoy growth in your relationship with God and build relationships with other believers through connection, study, friendship, prayer, encouragement, and challenge.

Generally, groups consist of about 6-12 (with some exceptions) that meet regularly in local homes or on the church campus. Most groups are open to newcomers throughout the year.

If you have questions about finding a suitable group, or if you would like to learn more about starting a new Small Group, please email Todd Becker. The small groups are listed below in weekday order, beginning with Sunday.

Co-ed Tuesday Night Study

Tuesdays @ 7pm

West Church Room 201 Upper Level

Lots of people think Christianity is all about doing what Jesus says. But what if doing what Jesus says isn’t what Jesus says to do at all? Jesus’ invitation is an invitation to relationship, and it begins with a simple request: follow me. Religion says “Change and you can join us.” Jesus says, “Join us and you will change.” There’s a huge difference. Jesus doesn’t expect people to be perfect. He just wants them to follow him. Contact Richard Boynton for more information


Spiritual Warfare

Co-ed Tuesday Night Study

1st and 3rd Tuesdays @ 7pm beginning May 7

701 Main Street, Haverhill, MA

What is spiritual warfare? How can I recognize it? In what ways does it affect me? The Bible has much to say about the temptations and struggles you face day by day. These studies will deepen your understanding of spiritual warfare and direct you to God-given sources of power, assurance and hope. Please join us at the home of Karl & Nancy Dickey. Contact Karl via email or call: 978 373-0739


Gospel Centered Life

Co-ed Wednesday Evening Study

Wednesdays @ 7pm

The Book of John

Men's Thursday Morning Study

Thursdays @ 7am

West Church Room 201 Upper Level

The Gospel of John is a unique perspective of the life of Jesus Christ. It varies from the other three gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke (also known as the synoptic gospels), by focusing more on spiritual themes rather than historical events. The study averages about 20, with high value on supporting each other in community, and it’s early enough to still get to the workplace on time! Participants go out to breakfast after the study as well. Contact Bob Hamilton for more information

12 Brendan Rd, Atkinson, NH

Beautiful Outlaw is a book by John Eldredge, on the subject of the personality of Jesus Christ. Its subtitle is Experiencing the Playful, Disruptive, Extravagant Personality of Jesus.
