We all long for a better understanding of God's Word, a more meaningful experience of fellowship, and the companionship of like-minded believers. The good news for us is that the Lord has provided us with great tools to draw nearer to Him and to better understand His word and His will.


For most Christians, the church becomes most real in a small group setting. Principles and ideas are best absorbed through discussion with a few friends. Our joys and concerns are most easily spoken and most fervently prayed for with a few familiar faces. People are more genuine, discussions are more thoughtful, care and compassion become evident.


God has designed us to share our faith and our journeys with a small group of friends. We want you to have that experience! Neelsville offers a wide range of small groups and classes, and we encourage you to connect! These include weekly or bi-weekly small groups, Bible studies, and classes. Some are for men, some for women, some for youth, some for couples, some for anyone at all. Some meet online while others meet in person.  Most of these groups have 5-15 members, and include time to share and catch up, time to pray together, and a study our lesson together.


We invite you to join any of the classes, Bible studies and small groups listed below! Contact office@neelsville.org for more information.

2022 Bible reading plan

Sunday Evenings 7:00-7:30pm via Zoom

Leaders:  Craig Wilson

You and I are bombarded by and shaped by "words" daily.  For Christians, we know that truly vital words are in God's Word.  So for 2022, how about joining in a year of reading and meditating on the Word of God?  God's Word wants to shape us too -- into what we were created to be.

  

The readings should take 30 minutes per day and you will read through all of Scripture in 2022 using the Bible Project's plan and tools.  Each week we will offer a half hour virtual meeting on Sunday at 7pm to encourage one another in the readings and tackle some questions.  Then periodically you will be invited, "incarnate," to a gathering at Joanne and Craig Wilson's house for food, discussion, prayer and worship.

   

This Scripture reading plan can be an ever-present help in 2022 to keep us from the discipling purposes of the world. By reading Scripture together, we can be people who are discipled and who make disciples empowered by God's Word.  The world is discipling us each moment, so if you wish to counter that, join us to read through all of the Scriptures in a year.

The Book of Proverbs - How to Live Wisely in a Foolish World

Sunday 9:30 – 10:30am | June 19 - Aug 28 | Large Classroom
Leader: Eileen Bauer, Bill Kroah & Craig Wilson

Sometimes at a loss for a way to wade through endless advice and viewpoints coming at you?  Wondering how to navigate relationships and work in a world of difficulties and hardships?  If so, consider a new class this summer on the book of Proverbs.  We'll use a provided study guide, supplemented by ways to read and understand the nuances of the Bible's Wisdom literature. We'll see how to apply these writings and how they fit into the biblical story-line leading to Jesus, the Wisdom of God.  Each class session can stand alone so you can attend as you're able. Join us as we learn how to avoid the foolish ways of the world and learn how to acquire God's wisdom for a flourishing life.


The Gospel Comes with a House Key

Sunday 9:30 – 10:30am | June 19 - Aug 14 | Fellowship Hall
Leader: Pastor Jeff

Adults and youth are invited to this Sunday morning class over the summer.  We will be using the book "The Gospel Comes with a House Key" by Rosaria Butterfield.  With the story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same "radical, ordinary hospitality" to bring the gospel to our friends and neighbors.  Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God's tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives - helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.  Pick up a copy of the book from Amazon or Barnes & Noble and join us!
