Groups

Don't do life alone! Connect with one of our study groups!
There's a place just for you!

Life is hard enough to live it alone. So why not live it with friends? Let’s explore the Word of God together.  Grow in your walk with God by joining a study group today! Faith is better with friends, because we are stronger together!

If you’re interested in joining a group or starting a new one, please call the church office at 308-382-1952

Way Seekers

The Way Seekers small group will begin meeting again on Sunday, Sept. 25. The first session will be a review of the book on Proverbs discussed last spring and an introduction to the book we will be discussing this fall, “Reckless Love” by Tom Berlin. Discussion of this book on how learning to better love our neighbors could help us develop a deeper relationship with God will begin Oct. 2. Everyone is welcome to join Way Seekers for this study. If you’re interested, contact Bette Pore at randbpore@gmail.com or call the church office, so books can be ordered.

*This is a Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) group that meets on Sunday mornings during the 10 a.m. fellowship hour between traditional and contemporary service.*

Scripture Discussion

Scripture discussion looks at their interpretation of the scripture used as the sermon basis for that day. The group considers how that scripture relates to life today and they look for the lesson within the reading. The leader of this group is Joyce Meinecke.

*This is a Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) group that meets on Saturday evenings at 5 p.m. before 6 p.m. traditional service. *

Sharing Our Life Stories

Sharing our life stories is the focus of another group. The power of life stories comes not only through sharing your story, but also by listening to the journey of others. For example, one week you may consider when your first memory of hearing about Jesus occurred in your life. Another time, you may be sharing places you have seen Jesus in the past week. The leader of this group is Marge Terman. This group will meet in the Youth Room.

This group will also pray over prayer requests that come to the church during the week. Tanya Roscoe is the group’s leader-this group will meet in the west end of Miller Hall.

Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is an ancient Christian Spiritual practice of listening for God’s voice through slowing down the process of reading scripture. Each week we’ll read the focus scripture for Sunday’s worship from three different voices and versions of the Bible, then go off for a time of silence, then return and reflect on how the scripture spoke to you.

The group meets Thursday mornings at 11 a.m. via Zoom. Email publications@trinityumcgi.org if you would like to join this group.
