JAM (Jesus and Me) Women's Circle - Second Monday at 1 pm

Donna Dennis Small Group - Second and Fourth Thursday at 6:30 pm

This group dives deep into short scripture readings daily (currently in Luke, soon to begin Acts). We summarize our thoughts onto paper and then meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 6:30p to review and share our discoveries. We marvel at how our daily reading can comfort and encourage each of us in different ways while understanding that was His design all along. All are welcome! 

Dan Tegtmeier Small Group - First Monday - Evenings - member's homes. Contact church office for more information.

This group is led by Dan, who chooses a topic, idea, or Bible story for the night's discussion. The group meets at different group member's homes. New members welcome!

Loaves, Fishes and Faith - Second and Fourth Tuesday at 11:30 am

Loaves, Fishes, and Faith grew out of a twice-monthly Bible Study meeting on Tuesdays at 1 PM at LCR.  Several members decided to meet for lunch at 11:30 at different restaurants in Marion followed by study at LCR so we added loaves and fishes to our name. Studies have included Women of the Bible, Prayer, and Stress Management.  The group focuses on Biblical themes but how it relates to our lives today.  We have been known to spend way more time on a study as we spend as much time sharing and supporting each other as the lesson.  Since COVID we have been meeting outside for lunch & group support.  All are welcome to visit and share food and faith with our group.
