DISCIPLESHIP

Spring Small Groups

Small groups are 8- 10 people who meet regularly – usually once per week. Their purpose is to foster fellowship while learning and growing in our Catholic faith. Groups can meet at someone’s home or request a space here at Church. If you wish to have refreshments or even a meal, that is up to the group. We are trying to keep this as flexible as possible. 


You can get together with people you know and form your own small group of 8-10 people; OR, sign up individually and you will be placed with a group according to your preferred topic and meeting time.  If you were in a group in the Fall, you can stay in that group or choose to join a different one. The materials will be provided, however a small donation to cover the cost would be appreciated. See the options for this Spring's Small Group Topics below. Preview the book or program easily below as well.

Opening the Word on formed.org [Video and Discussion]  


Back by popular demand, Opening the Word is a preview into the Sunday Scripture readings.  Using video and discussion/reflection questions, participants gain further insight into the Sunday readings and apply take-aways to everyday life.  Former participants said they got much more out of the Liturgy of the Word after being involved in an Opening the Word small group. 8 or more sessions.

Rediscover the Saints (Dynamic Catholic) [Book] by Matthew Kelly.


This is not your “typical” book of Saints!  If your group wants easy reading, good discussion questions, everyday life application, learning about real people who have impacted our world over the centuries, this is your choice.  Rediscover the Saints books were gifted to the parish at Christmas – perhaps now is the time to open the book and see what is inside your gift!  Small groups will cover a few short chapters each week and use a discussion guide coupled with optional videos. 8-9 sessions.

We Pray:  Living in God’s Presence [book] by Fr. Oscar Lukefahr.  


Could you use a “primer on prayer”?  Could your prayer life use a boost? Would you like a better understanding of how to have conversation with God and develop a closer relationship with Jesus? In his humorous and easy-to-read style, Fr. Lukefahr walks the reader through the various ways God speaks to us and we speak to God.  Groups will read one chapter a week and use Fr. Luke’s discussion/reflection questions. 8-9 sessions.

Conversion:  Following the Call of Christ [video and workbook] by Bishop Robert Barron.  


Are you a Bishop Robert Barron fan?  Is your group interested in looking deeper into scripture?  Conversion takes the participant into 6 stories from the Gospel of John to show how encounters with Jesus are life changing.  “Conversion is not just a one-time event, but an ever-deepening process of growing closer to Jesus until we are finally and fully united with him and his will (Conversion study guide p.1).”  At each session, participants view an 18-20 minute video and complete workbook questions for understanding and application. 7 sessions.
