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.

Lent Devotional Discussion Class

Sunday mornings 9:30 - 10:30am | Feb 26 - Apr 2 | Conference Room

Leader: Jason Evans and Eileen Bauer

What is Lent? The word “Lent” comes from the Old English word “lengten,” which simply means “spring” — when the days lengthen and new life springs forth. It is a time in which we anticipate the victory of the light and life of Christ over the darkness of sin and death. It is, to borrow a phrase from C.S. Lewis, a season of a kind of “happiness and wonder that makes you serious.” As we journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter, let's pray that we are reminded of the reality of our broken humanity, but also that, as days grow brighter, we experience with greater abundance the reality of God’s redeeming grace. And so, just as we carefully prepare for big events in our personal lives, such as a wedding or commencement, Lent invites us to make our hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Follow along with the 40-day devotional that will guide our discussion each week at: www.gospelinlife.com/lent-devotional/ (hard copies will be available each Sunday for the week ahead).

The Art of Lent

Sunday mornings 9:30 - 10:30am | Feb 26 - Apr 2 | Large Classroom

Leader: Danielle & Jonathan Harris

Throughout history, the Christian Church has used artwork both as a means of worship and as a teaching tool for the (often illiterate) masses. Artistic depictions of biblical scenes help the scriptures come alive in our minds and facilitate a greater emotional response to these stories. Join us this Lenten season as we seek to deepen our Biblical insights by examining artwork related to six events of Jesus’ earthly ministry. Each week, we’ll read the Scriptural text of a different event, then discuss how our reading of the Gospel is enhanced by viewing several artistic depictions of the story. Intentionally varied in style and place/date of creation, these pieces of art will lead us through Lent to Christ’s passion and triumph as we use them to meditate on the person and ministry of our Savior.


Heaven & Earth – A Study of Genesis

Sunday Evenings 7:00 – 7:30pm | Online

Leader: Craig Wilson & others


This class is for any and all who could use help reading the Bible with others. It is an online class taught by Dr. Tim Mackie (Bible Project). Debates around how to understand heaven and earth in Genesis 1 often distract us from the significance of the Bible’s opening words. Explore the architecture of Heaven and Earth, first introduced in Genesis 1 and developed throughout the Psalms and the Bible’s wisdom literature. Learn to read the Bible in light of the author’s ancient worldview and discover the rich meaning in Jesus’ message about the new creation. Study on your own each week will take approximately 1 hour. We will meet briefly, weekly by Zoom on Sunday evenings to review what we learned in the online class.

Website for Online Class - you sign up for the class online, then watch the classroom videos. We are doing four, 15- minute sessions on our own each week. Go here for the class sign-up and to see the content:
