We believe that bible studies and small groups, when composed of people who really care about one another and are gathered around God’s Word, can be a great help to us in growing closer to Jesus. Please peruse the following information on the bible studies and small groups that we are currently offering and see if one of them will fit for you.
If you would like to join a small group, please contact the church office or click here to sign up online.

CLBI (The Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute in Camrose Alberta) has started a new initiative called the72. Just as Jesus sent out the 72 to do ministry in Luke 10, Jesus sends us out to be disciples who make disciples. Through weekly teaching, pod-casts, and discipleship groups (d-groups), this growing network of disciples can expect to be encouraged, equipped, and challenged to pay attention to how Jesus is at work in and around them. These d-groups are online (via zoom) from 6:30-8:00pm (Pacific Time) on Wednesday evenings.
Being part of a d-group is different than being in a small group bible study. This is not an invitation to simply take in new information about following Jesus. This is an invitation to enter into a discipling relationship where just as Jesus and the 12 disciples shared their lives together, so will we (even if it is virtually). The first online gathering was on September 30, but it's not too late to join! D-groups are open to participants ages 16-99. There is no fee to join a d-group. To sign-up go to the72.ca before 2 pm on Wednesday.
A key resource we are using on this journey is Greg Finke's book, "Joining Jesus on His Mission". Participants will also be asked to buy a daily scripture devotional book called "Seeking God's Face" by Phil Reinders.
