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, even in these days of pandemic. 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. Most will be meeting on the computer (for example, Zoom), though some are meeting in person in a socially distanced fashion. Most of these groups have 5-15 members, and include time to share and catch up, time to pray together, and a study or 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.

In clear, simple language, this guide helps us accurately understand the different parts of the Bible—their meaning for ancient audiences and their implications for us today—so we can uncover the inexhaustible worth that is in God’s Word. Everyone is welcome. Join us!

Genesis (Zoom 9:00am)

The Genesis study resumes September 13, picking up at chapter 15, a pivotal point over the trustworthiness of God, a question raised by Adam and Eve, now revisited with Abraham. We begin to see how God will deal with fears, protect and reward those who trust in Him in a broken and dark world.

Galatians (In person at church, 9:15am)

For the next 3 weeks (September 20 - Oct. 4), they will be finishing studying Galatians. Then on October 11, they will begin a DVD series by Del Tackett called "The Engagement Project". Participants will watch the DVD on their own during the week (https://www.deltackett.com/engagement ) and come to class to discuss it.

Question and Answer Opportunity following the Sermon (In person at church, 12:00)

Pastor Jeffrey Rickett will be available after the service each week to discuss the Book of Acts and answer questions about the sermon.
