201 – Connection Groups
4-10 week groups – Email Emily Hoover at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about these groups.
Men’s Bible Study – Exodus – Moses’ exploits were fantastic, however, the way he responded to tragedy and trials in his life give us an example of how we are to respond to events as they occur in our lives. This group is an opportunity to get to know other men and grow in the Word of God. Elder Rick Swaim and Brian Pahl will be hosting this gathering. The group will meet from 6:30-7:30 on Friday mornings from February 1 to March 29 at Martins. Learn more and register here.
Women’s Bible Study – Breathe: Making Room For Sabbath – With a jam-packed life, what’s missing is space – space for God to speak, room for you to hear. It’s time to set aside the activities and busyness that swallows up rest and peace. It’s time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Join other women longing to discover Sabbath margin, the boundary God enables us to put around things we enjoy so that we never become slaves again. The cost of the group is $15 for the study journal, which includes weekly journal prompts to engage the study content. This 5-week study will have three sections: Thursdays from 1-3pm at the home of Mary Schindel, Thursdays from 6:30-8pm at the YMCA, or 7-9pm on Thursday evenings at the home of Abisha Gross.

Grief Connection Group – Grief is a part of life for all of us on this earth. As followers of Jesus, we want to grief with hope! We also want to acknowledge with compassion the pain of loss. Join us for a four week group in March intended to peer into what grief is, how grief affects people experiencing loss, and how we can meaningfully come alongside those in grief as individuals and collectively as a church. Stay tuned for more details.
MP Moms – MP Moms is a group for Mission Point moms in any season of life! The group meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 7-9pm. For more information, please visit this page.
301 – Missional Communities
Groups commit to meet through the school year
Missional Communities are our term for what other churches would call “small groups.” They are groups that do life together throughout the year, helping each other grow to love Jesus and more purposely live His Mission. Our Missional Communities meet at various times throughout the week, and encompass many different demographics (multi-generational, empty-nesters, Post-Grads, young families, etc). To be placed in a Missional please fill out this form, and a staff member will be in touch within a week with suggested group placements.
