WEDNESDAY EVENING COMMUNITY GROUPS • 6:30 TO 8:00 PM
Meeting September through May • Community Groups at SPC are where we are growing to be more like Jesus by practicing love. The people in these groups make two related commitments: 1) To love the people in their group, and 2) To occasionally, as a group, express love to neighbors. While Wednesday Evening Community Groups are primarily an opportunity for parents to be in Community Groups while their kids are participating in Cat Clubs, Middle School Youth Fellowship, or one of our High School Community Groups, everyone is welcome. To join a Wednesday Evening Community Group, contact Curt Kenney.
We have six Co-ed Groups meeting at SPC on Wednesday evenings. Each group determines its own weekly agenda. Leaders include:
- Joe & Mary Ruth Topham in Room 104
- Ford & Nekole Brandis in Room 203
- Hank & Peggy Graeser in Room 205
- Steve Constable at Joe’s Inn Bon Air
GATEWAY COMMUNITY GROUP • THE LIBRARY
Led by Curt Kenney and David & Shelly Dahlstrand • This group provides an SPC Community Group experience for people who are new to the faith or new to the church, and desiring to make personal connections at church. Each week, through discussions and prayer, the participants get to know and begin to love one another. And when the time is right, they are given the opportunity to create new Community Groups and to deepen the relationships they have established in the Gateway.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY GROUPS • ROOM 206
The King We Need: A Study in First Samuel
Led by Various Teacher • This year we are studying First Samuel, the story of God’s people, our people, clamoring for a king. God answers their cries and all of the kings He provides, even those who seem to be the best, are deeply flawed, as we are all flawed. All of these kings point us to the future coming perfect King of Kings, Jesus! Each lesson will begin with a short teaching focused on application of the scripture to our lives followed by time in our groups to discuss and pray through God’s Word.
COMMUNITY GROUPS FOR MEN • ROOM 130 & ROOM 123 (ZAC’S OFFICE)
Led by George Deebo and Rob Garnett • Men just being men. Discussing the issues of the day from the perspective of faith and faithfulness. Praying for one another through the daily struggles of home and work.

KITTY CAT CLUB • ROOMS 112 & 116

Cat Club lessons are based on the New City Catechism. Parents are encouraged to help their children memorize, understand, and live by these truths.
MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH FELLOWSHIP • ROOM 201
MSYF meets most Wednesdays from 6:30 until 8:00 PM. It strives to help students cultivate a greater love for God and people. This is done through much laughter and fun, Bible study, small group discussion, and prayer.
