Group Bible Study on a White Wood Table

Small Groups provide a space for Prince of Peace disciples to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus and one another through regular connection and community. Small groups gather for Bible study, book clubs or other types of affinity, common hobbies or interests.

Are small groups still connecting, even in this pandemic? Of course they are! If you are looking for connection, small groups at Prince of Peace are still meeting in various ways and we’d love to have you join in! Available small groups are listed below.

Our small groups are getting creative in the ways that they connect during this pandemic. Here are some tips and tricks for staying connected to your small group, while physically distancing and keeping one another safe:

  • Utilize an online video platform to have group meetings remotely. Many of our groups are using Zoom to schedule group meetings. It is super easy to use and fun to get to SEE one another. If your group has not tried Zoom yet, we highly recommend it!
  • Check in with one another via text, email, phone call, or writing letters. We have some groups that have started a “pen pal” chain and send each other mailed letters to check in and stay connected. Others are pairing up group members to check in regularly via phone or text.
  • Meet in a park, yard, parking lot, while following physically distancing guidelines. Now that the weather is nicer, we can take advantage of our outside spaces!
