LOVING PEOPLE INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS TO CHANGE THE WORLD

SMALL GROUPS

At Cokesbury, we believe that God designed us to be in community with him, with other Christians, and with the world. For us, Small Groups provide that community. When you commit to being a part of a Small Group, it won’t be long before you realize that life really is better together.

Small Groups invite us into deeper conversations and relationships with others who want to know and follow Jesus. Groups of up to 12 people gather weekly, currently using an online platform, outside the normal structure of weekend worship.

We form new Small Groups periodically throughout the year.  Our next Small Group Launch will be in March. Interest meetings are March 7, 10, and 14. Groups will launch the week of March 21.

TEACHING GROUPS

Teaching groups are led by a facilitator. Groups gather to learn through Biblically-based study and class discussion. These groups meet during the week or on Sunday. All Teaching Groups are currently meeting virtually. 

When you join a group via the registration links, you will receive a confirmation email that will give you all the details you need in order to participate. Contact Mary Lou Sokolow at mlsokolow@cokesbury.tv or 865-246-0438 if you need assistance.
