Flocks (Small Groups) – the Gospel of John

Note: We will be suspending all of our regular meetings, including Sunday morning worship from now through the end of May. That is to say, we will not be holding services at the church in May.


We have a number of different small groups (“mini-flocks”) which meet on Sunday evenings either in various homes or at the church to study God’s Word, pray and enjoy fellowship and food together. Flocks are an important way to deepen and strengthen our relationships with one another as we spend time together in discussion, prayer, and fellowship. Visitors are also encouraged to join this informal time of fellowship to get to know the members of the church and what we believe. This year (Fall ‘19 – Spring ‘20) all of our groups will gather at the church to study the Gospel of John.

The Study

At the end of his gospel account, John explained the purpose of all that he had written: “These [things] are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.”  As we go through this study of the Gospel of John we will have completely missed the point if we do not come away with a greater love for and trust in Jesus Christ as we see Him to be the eternal and divine Son who came to accomplish all that was necessary for our redemption.  Like a light that pierces the darkness, Jesus came into this broken, sin-sick world.  He exposed our wickedness and our lostness, showing us that what we need—forgiveness and life—is found in Him and in Him alone.  So as we study the pages of John’s Gospel we pray that our hearts would be stirred with love and longing for this great and only Savior: the Shepherd of our souls and the Lamb who takes our sins away.
