Register ahead of time at this link.

This fall, we are going all in on sermon-based groups to help us grow together as a church body. Sermon-based groups will gather each week to dive deeper into the message using the Sermon Discussion Guide. This format enables everyone to discuss and apply what they are learning and hearing from God each week while staying in sync with the heart of the church.

Groups Leader Training will cover the vision and heart for Groups at Grace Church and equip you with practical tools for discipling others in a small group context.

Whether you’ve been leading a group for years or would like to lead a group for the first time, this training will provide valuable insights that will help you grow in your disciple-making journey.


The training consists of two sessions:

Session 1: Vision for Discipleship through Groups

Session 2: Tools and Expectations for Leading a Group

  • Tuesday, August 13, 2024
  • Instructor: Keith Golightly, Young Adults Pastor

What are sermon-based groups?

Sermon-based groups meet each week to discuss practical application from the message and to share what God is speaking.

The discussion guide includes a summary of the message, a list of Scripture verses referenced in the sermon, and discussion questions.
