Connecting people to God and each other.

We want to help you get connected to God and connected to other people. Being a part of a large group worship experience usually isn’t difficult for most people. It’s often more challenging to find a smaller group where you can connect with others. But we believe that being part of a small group enhances your life and your walk with Jesus. So, we want to try and make it a little easier to find a group where you might fit.

Seasonal Groups starting Fall 2023

Romans (Sunday Evenings 5:30-7:30, room 140)
Our main course this fall is a verse-by-verse look at Paul’s letter to the Romans, using the "Following God" workbook written by Eddie Rasnake. Participants will have structured Bible study homework questions to allow them to dig into the text personally. Small groups will meet around the tables and discuss what they are learning during the first hour. Then there will be a break for snacks followed by a corresponding message from one of our pastors. Workbook: $10
Led by: Woodland Park Pastors
Gospel Centered Sexuality (Sunday Evenings 5:30-7:30, room 152)
Moving forward, the topic of sexuality will become increasingly important to saving the souls of our children, neighbors, and for all people. The next generation must be equipped to confidently articulate their stance using scripture, as well as the sciences, and they definitely have to be more comfortable having these conversations. In order for that to happen, we must believe there is a need and then become more comfortable with the conversations ourselves. 
Led by: Sue Moore (Forgiven Much Ministries) and Alayne Erickson (Sunday Evenings 5:30-7:30, room 140)

Bible Doctrine Survey (Wednesday Evenings 6:30-8:00, room 170)
Most Christians who have been following the Lord for any length of time have a sense of what they believe about God, His Word, Christ, sin, and other important areas of the Christian life. For many, however, what they believe is shaped by what they have been taught, or what a particular passage seems to suggest, but not by what they have studied thoroughly. In this practical manual, the student is guided through a survey of relevant passages to help shape a doctrinal foundation in ten key areas of theology. Covered in this manual are the doctrines of bibliology (the Scriptures), Theology Proper (God the Father), Christology (Christ), Anthropology (humanity), hamartiology (sin), soteriology (salvation), ecclesiology (the Church), angelology (angels and demons), eschatology (end times), and pneumatology (the Holy Spirit). This study will help lay a foundation for all Bible study, and answer important questions in these key areas.
Led by: The SALT Faculty

The Pursuit of Holiness (Thursday Evenings 6:00-7:30, room 168)
“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God to His people. But what does that look like in everyday life? Because of grace we don’t have to earn our salvation . . . but sometimes that leaves us wondering what our part in holiness should be. In this established and long-esteemed resource, renowned author Jerry Bridges helps us see where we should rely on God―and where we should accept responsibility. Whether you are just beginning your new life as a Christian or you are continuing your journey, this established and esteemed resource will guide and challenge you to joyfully obey God’s call to “be holy.”
