Lenten Small Groups 2019 

Small Groups are short-term groups which strive to help people of all ages and stages connect, learn, and grow. They range from book groups to meet-ups. Are you looking to get connected? Join us for one of the following gatherings. Do you have an idea for a short-term small group? Contact Caroline Manning (cmanning@myersparkbaptist.org) to share your idea. 


Common Life Groups | A Lenten Practice  

Dates | Wednesdays Evenings Throughout Lent
Times | 5:15p or 7:00p
| TBA   

Group Description   
“Where two or more are gathered there I will be.” Matthew 18:20 

“Here we are, you and I, and I hope that Christ makes a third with us. No one can interrupt us now. . . . So come now, dearest friend, reveal your heart and speak your mind.” (p. 29) ~ Aelred of Rievaulx, Spiritual Friendship 

When we take time to consider what it means to have the space to reveal our hearts and speak our minds, we might realize that there are few spaces in our lives where we can experience this. With the world becoming more disconnected and divided, we need a space where we can gather for the purpose of finding our common life. The forming of our Common Life Groups will hopefully bring this space into your life. As we have been dreaming and planning, we have imagined a group where real conversation around real life can happen. 

Beginning on March 13, you will have the opportunity to participate in a Common Life Group as a Lenten Practice. The flow for each group will be as follows: check in from each person, centering thought, then conversation around how we experience faith in our everyday life. There will be two groups on Wednesday evenings; one will meet from 5:15 – 6:15p and the other from 7:00 – 8:00p. Registration is now open through myMPBC.
