When you think about it, a close relationship with God and great friendships are easily the most important ingredients to a satisfying life. Jesus knew this. That's why so much of his teaching was devoted to helping us learn how to grow relationships that matter. So we try to give a lot of grace and commitment to each other. When we do, we find that Jesus' promise of an "abundant" kind of life is closer than we realized.
At POG, we try to facilitate growing friendships with a variety of groups. Some are focused on Bible study while others enjoy common interests. Click below to learn more about our current groups and how to get plugged into them.
Journey With Christ
Journey With Christ (JWC) is our monthly Saturday morning women's Bible study. We alternate studying books of the Bible and book studies of specific books of the Bible by a variety of authors. We consider recommendations and have a group vote as to what our next study will be. In the past we have read Women of the Bible, the book of Proverbs, the book of Daniel, The Best is Yet to Come (prophecies of the Bible), and Adored (the God Who Sees Me). We just began a study of Galatians and will be utilizing the commentary by N.T. Wright. We welcome new members! We typically meet the third Saturday of each month in the POG sanctuary and would love it if you'd join us. Childcare is not provided.
This group is led by Scott and Gina Sallstrom and studies the Sunday morning topic in greater depth.
Women's Bible Study
The first three Wednesday evenings of the month we gather to study God's word, have fellowship, enjoy friendship and pray together. We would love to have you join. We are currently studying the book of Hebrews.
This group is led by Scott Sallstrom. All men are invited to our (almost) weekly Bible study. We meet for a time of friendship, prayer, and growing deeper in God's word. We are currently studying Exodus.
Young Adult's Group
This group meets on Sunday evenings and they’re on the move—literally. They’ll be studying a book of the Bible with the help of study guides. For more info, contact Elizabeth at (479) 841-7193 (text or call).
