Small Groups

Aldersgate has Small Groups for study and/or fellowship, offering a chance to study the Bible and connect with others in the same stage of life. Different groups may meet weekly, monthly, or a couple of times per month. Unlike short term Bible studies, the ongoing study groups remain together and choose studies that are relevant to their life stage. The fellowship groups provide an opportunity to socialize with other Christians. if there are any questions or to get connected to any of these groups, please contact Ginny Parr, the Adult Education Coordinator. Registrations for some studies are on the Adult Short Term Study page.
