Small Groups

We believe that life is incredibly better, when we can share it amongst friends. That’s why we have groups of folks who meet all over Carlton county on different nights of the week. Our groups are created to help people connect with Jesus and learn what it looks like to share life with one another and cultivate life giving friendships.

white privilege   #blacklivesmatter

These words dial up all sorts of emotions and questions in our culture today. We’re going to take some time to sit at the same table and have a life-giving conversation about how we can learn and grow. Our heart is to engage in some critical thinking on the subject of racism. We will be using a resource called “Whiteness 101”. Each week we’ll take some time to go through some readings then come together to share what we learned, what surprised us, or what we made us uncomfortable. These conversations will be hard and uncomfortable at times, but we feel this is an area as Jesus looking people where we can and need to grow to continue to be a good and beautiful community.

The lioness rises from her slumber, a magnificent image of strength, passion, and beauty. Her mere presence commands the landscape, protects her young, and empowers the lion. In groups, lionesses become a creative and strategic force to be reckoned with, acting as one to change the world around them. You too are a Lioness. Packed with remarkable insights from nature and the rich depth of biblical references to lionesses, Lioness Arising is a call for women to rise up in strength and numbers to change their world. Jesus is, after all, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. And we are his lioness arising.

The Bondage Breaker (more than 1.2 million copies sold) leads readers away from the shadows and shackles in their lives and toward the freedom that comes when they realize they have the right to be free, confront the power of Satan, fight the temptation to do it their way, trade deception for grace, affirm their identity in Christ.

Neil Anderson ultimately helps people break negative thought patterns, control irrational feelings, and break out of the bondage of sinful behavior. Those struggling will discover how to embrace the promise of Jesus to win the spiritual battles that confront them.
