ME & MY JOURNEY  •  WOMEN  •  MEN  •  THEOLOGY  •  SMALL GROUP LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Our spiritual growth is contingent on the consistent and purposeful application of truth. The ministries you will find listed on this page offer resources for those pursuing spiritual health.

We feel that life change best happens is a small group. Here is some info on how to find a Life Group to try out or how to start one yourself. The Woodcrest facility is available to those who want to lead a group, but can't host in their home.

GroupLink® is a two-hour event where people meet and connect with others in their area of town and stage of life to start a Life Group. Groups are asked to initially commit to meet together for eight times. This time is spent getting to know each other and doing a short Bible study. At the end of the eight sessions, group members decide to either continue with the group for an additional 12 to 24 months, or wait and join a different group at another time. WANT INFO ON THE NEXT ONE OR HAVE MORE QUESTIONS? Hit up Sherry Horsey

MEN HAVE MANY OPPORTUNITIES: SUNDAY & WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, PLUS EVENTS-BASED GATHERINGS FOR LUNCHES, BASEBALL GAMES, SERVICE PROJECTS, SOME ALL-FAMILY INVITES AND MORE 

SUNDAY EVENINGS

Sunday evening classes for men are a drop-in Bible study. You can start anytime during the semester and you don't need to attend every week to feel connected, but you're going to want to! We are meeting in The Underground which is UNDER the staff offices and you enter on the west side of the main building...it's off of the little drive that goes between the main building and The Edge.

NOTE: WEEKLY MEETINGS BEGIN AGAIN ON OCTOBER 7TH

Usually, we meet every Sunday at 7pm in The Underground on the Columbia campus. Check social media for any cancellations like Mother's Day, Memorial Day, etc., but note that we don't meet on many holiday weekends.


WEDNESDAY EVENINGS

Our Wednesday evening group life ministry is the primary connection for men at Woodcrest, offering a safe place for them to become part of a community of men committed to being real and known on the spiritual journey. Men learn and share how to grow and mature in faith through applying biblical principles to life’s daily issues.

Wednesday 6pm -8pm on the Columbia campus for 13-week during the spring and fall semesters.


EVENTS

BOWLING, SERVICE PROJECTS, PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, LUNCHES, REGIONAL TOURS, GOLF, MOVIES, CONCERTS, ETC. 

Our men's ministry also has highly relational-based events. There is no curriculum for these multi-generational outings which vary from month to month. Please email Kevin Bartolacci to get on the mailing list for upcoming events.
