Study Groups

Learning about Jesus is for everyone.

"but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night." - Psalm 1:2

Lenten Small Groups

Lenten Sermon Groups are forming! Our Lenten Sermon Series entitled, "Giving Up" based around the sacrifices of Christ on our behalf. Groups will meet following each week's sermon (Sundays, February 21-March 28) to join in conversation and discussion based on  the previous week's sermon. Groups will begin meeting the week of February 22 and continue for six weeks leading up to Easter Sunday, April 4.

See the options below and choose a group that's right for you. If you don't see a group that meets your needs, or if you'd like to lead your own group, please contact AmyM@dspres.org

Group leaders will contact their registrants soon with meeting information and Zoom links if meeting online. All Covid-19 protocols are necessary and in place for groups meeting in-person. As a result, in-person groups may reach capacity. In that instance, new groups will form in an attempt to accommodate everyone who wishes to participate in a group.

Wednesday

Wednesday Women’s Bible Study - Ladies of all ages are invited to join us as we have fun together studying the Bible as well as reading other faith-based books.  You are welcomed no matter where you are in your personal faith journey.  We meet via Zoom every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m.–12:00 noon.  Call Carolyn Joyner (956)343-9170 or email at tandc@joyners72.com to join the fun!
Our Wednesday Women's Bible Study small group will be doing a 6-week Lenten study starting Feb. 17 on Susan Robb’s book entitled, “Seven Words: Listening to Christ from the Cross.”
 “As Jesus draws his final breath and utters his last words, it is then that his deep trust in the Father and his divine glory are revealed.  In this study, the author looks at Christ’s final words from a biblical and historical perspective, showing how we can find life and hope in them.”

 Women’s Renewal Group – Meeting weekly (right after Women’s Bible Study which is not mandatory for this group). Participants have an opportunity (but no requirement) to share their week from a spiritual perspective as well as any joys or concerns they may have. Other topic guidelines include moments of feeling closest to Christ, study for the week, and chances to share with others. Noon until 1 pm or so at church. Childcare is not provided. Want more details? Contact:  Nancy Walton, walton727@gmail.com, or (512)590-2470.

Men’s Bible Study - You’re invited to a laid-back discussion group about Scripture and how it applies to our lives. Men of all ages and stages are invited to join the discussion. Contact Matt Zarbaugh (512) 409-4130 or Steve Braunstein (512-925-1749) for more details. Currently meeting via Zoom.

Friday

Men’s Study Group - Want to be a part of a men’s roundtable gathering on Friday mornings? Through our reading and discussion, we attempt to discern how to live more like Christ and grow in our relationship with God. Generally, we alternate between a book of the Bible and a book outside the Bible that is of a spiritual nature. Anyone interested in pursuing these is welcome, regardless of where you may be regarding your Biblical knowledge and relationship with God. Join us on Friday mornings 7:30-9:00am via Zoom. For more information, contact Marvin Williams at marvin@smallemployerbenefits.com.
