These small group Bible studies meet in various locations in York County. Feel free to visit the groups, in order to find one that you can call home! Meeting dates, times, and locations are listed each week in the bulletin and can be found on the Calendar page.
Home fellowships (aka small groups), are ideal places, for newcomers, and those seeking to better understand the Christian faith, to connect. These small groups are one of the ways we do ministry here at Providence and are open to anyone regardless of their faith commitment or membership status in the church. The atmosphere of a home fellowship is warm and non-threatening. Our Small Groups are an important part of our ministry here at Providence, providing an environment where Christ ministers to and through us, where relationships are nurtured, and where people care and look to the concerns of others. These fellowships provide opportunities for the use and development of spiritual gifts for the building up of the body of Christ, and encourage us to live God-pleasing lives.
New Group Forming
Starting on January 9th at 6:30 PM, Sharon Herman will be leading a Bible study she developed after her bout with cancer. “Physical Weakness to Spiritual Strength: Dealing with Life Threatening and Life Changing Illnesses” will combine the work of four authors — John Piper, Vince Wood, Kelly Sensenig and Stephanie Hubach — and will look at these life changing events from God’s perspective. Together the group will search Scripture to answer questions like: Why me? Why now? And we will seek to understand what God expects of us as we walk this new path. When we feel that everything in our life has changed and nothing will ever be the same again, we will remember the promises of God that have not changed. Please join us for this study every other week from 6:30-8:00 PM. Add your name to the sign-up sheet or contact Sharon with questions.
We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at 7 p.m.
Dean Miller is currently leading a study of the book of Galations. A time of prayer, followed by a time of fellowship which includes snacks and dessert, close out our evening.
Though our group was started because of geographic location, that no longer defines us and we would love to encourage anyone who is interested in joining us. Contact Sue Palmer for more info.
GRANDVIEW AT SHILOH
Meets the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month at 7 p.m. in the Shiloh area. Leader: George Shelly. Our evening together includes a time of catching up, followed by prayer. We then have a time of Bible study, which may be topical in nature or, working through a book of the Bible. We end our evening with fellowship over some refreshments.
college and career
Have you had an “aha!” moment? We’ve experienced plenty of these moments in our lives, but in Kyle Idleman’s book, AHA, he analyzes how we can experience one in our spiritual lives. The College and Career Small Group is reading Idleman’s book and looking for ways to apply his ideas to our own lives, so that through Scripture, we can draw closer to God and experience the “AHA” moment! The College and Career Small Group meets on Thursday evenings from 6-9 PM. Contact Andrea Denning for more details.
The Sleepy Hollow Small Group meets at the home of Jay and Kathy Hassinger. We are a diverse, multi-generational gathering, which meets every other Sunday over a shared meal. Following the meal is a focused Bible study to equip each other to love and serve Jesus Christ. We strive to encourage one another to engage in relationships with people who are new to us in our own spheres of influence and, through the word of God, to empower one another to own and expand our personal ministries. We are a warm, welcoming bunch with room at our table for others to join us.
A new small group recently started! They meet the last Friday of each month, and are discussing Max Lucado’s book, Cast of Characters. Contact Doug or Nancy Dickey for more details.
