Small Groups

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Acts 2:42.

For adult members and friends of Nassau Church, Small Groups of 6-12 people offer a structured opportunity for deep connection based on faith and a desire to live a life of discipleship. Groups discuss a Bible story or a book chapter, share joys and concerns, pray for one another, and send each other in ministry.

Small Groups are held in the Fall and during Lent.

Forming & Re-Forming Community

Fall is in the air, and that means it’s time for Small Groups at Nassau, when we explore new horizons and expand our circle of friends. New opportunities for learning and growing in faith, led by members and church staff, are here, hot off the press!

There are many dictionary definitions of community, but they all are about a group of people who share something in common. Each Small Group will be a community, with something to say about other communities. Questions about community are in the headlines and preoccupy modern life. Are communities stronger when defined by common beliefs, or distinguished by a diversity of gifts?

Several groups will study the book of Exodus and learn how God formed a group of wandering refugees into a (mostly) faithful community.

Additional Small Group options include:

  • A very contemporary pastor’s entertaining take on what Christian community looks like today
  • A classic children’s fantasy series with deep theological truths
  • A search for truth about nature through photography.

If you have never been part of a Small Group, why not try it out? If you are a perennial participant, welcome back! Space may be limited for many groups, so sign up soon!
