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.  Use the link below to register to receive an email when new Groups will launch.

FOR EVERYONE 

 

Flourish: Practices for Spiritual Growth - Flourish is a new year-long Teaching Group designed to help us learn and flourish in our relationship with God. Each month, beginning in February, Charles Maynard will share a short video that introduces the practice that we will consider for the month. We will also have a monthly Zoom discussion group, and reading assignments. We will be referring to our bibles and to the book Celebration of Discipline – The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard J. Foster. 

This group will continue throughout 2021. 

To be a part of this group, purchase the Foster book from your favorite bookseller and register here to receive the monthly videos and links for the Zoom group discussions. Discussion groups will be held on the last Tuesday of each month at noon and the last Wednesday of each month at 7:45 pm.
