Small Groups

We pursue gospel-centered community through Small Groups. The groups are made up of men and women from all generations of life. We meet together during the week for prayer, fellowship, accountability, and studying God’s Word. When we come together, we expect the Holy Spirit to lead us to the finished work of Jesus in His life, death, and resurrection and to send us out on His mission. 

We currently have 4 Small Groups. 

East Carbondale Group: Mondays at 6 p.m.

West Carbondale Group: Wednesdays at 6 p.m.

Carterville Group: Sundays at 7 p.m.

Goreville/Vienna Group: Wednesdays at 6 p.m.

"Who is discipling you? Who are you discipling?" These are questions that we regularly ask. Jesus tells us in Matt 28:18-20 

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” 

So we make disciples of Jesus. Though each discipleship relationship is different, we usually try to connect weekly for one-on-one discussion over coffee, a meal, or opening the Bible together and taking time to pray with one another. We encourage all of our people to meet together to be strengthened, encouraged, and spur one another on to love and good works.
