Sunday Morning Classes

Starting on Sunday, Sept. 9, all Sunday morning adult classes will meet together in the Fellowship Hall (downstairs) at 9:30 am to study the visioning Bible study, "Together with God's Vision." Everyone is invited to attend this study, which is designed to help people connect with each other and develop closer relationships as well as develop a closer relationship with the Lord.

So before or after church, come down to the Fellowship Hall, grab a cup of coffee, and select a group of people or a person to sit with at one of the round tables. No assignments will be made, just make yourself at home.

"Together with God's Vision" is a nine week Bible study that coincides with the weekly sermon series:

September 9: Forming Relationships
September 16:   Experiencing Jesus Together
September 23: Sharing God’s Love
September 30: Value: Serving God’s People

Small Group FAQs

Why are small groups important for me and for our congregation?

Small groups follow the pattern that Jesus established with his disciples. He lived with them and helped them apply their faith in God to their daily lives. At Our Savior's Way, our desire is to help people make friends and feel connected to our community. Small groups allow us to grow larger as a worshiping community while still maintaining the intimacy of a small congregation. Small groups help connect us to God and to each other.

What is a small group?

It is a group of 5 to 15 people who decide to meet regularly to grow in their faith in Christ and to apply their faith to their lives.

Is a small group a Bible study?

Small groups have a variety of formats that express the desires and interests of the group members. Small groups have five components:

  • Worship
  • Fellowship
  • Spiritual Growth
  • Service
  • Outreach

Each group may choose to emphasize one of these components more than the others. Some groups may focus on studying the Bible, some on fellowship, others on serving.

How do I know which group is right for me?

See which group matches your passion, needs, interests, and learning style. Pray about it and then choose the group that fits you.

How can I learn more about the small groups that are being offered at OSW?

Look over the list of groups on this page, see what groups interest you, then contact the group leader. You might ask the leader if you could attend one of the group sessions to see if this group is a fit for you.

Who will be leading the group?

The groups are led by committed Christians who have been trained to lead a small group. All our leaders have a heart to serve the Lord and have a love for people.

Do you have to be a member of OSW to participate in a small group? What if I have a friend who would like to attend a small group with me?

By all means, bring your friend. All small groups are open to anyone in the congregation or community. Our desire at OSW is to provide a community for everyone to grow in their faith in Christ. Each small group has an empty chair which symbolizes its openness to share the Gospel with those who do not know Christ.

Will I be embarrassed because I do not know about the Bible or know the answers to questions about the faith?

No! Small groups provide a safe and caring environment for everyone to grow in their faith in Christ. Small group leaders are trained to care for people and help participants feel welcome.

How can I become a small group leader?

One way is to join a small group and volunteer to help the group leader. Or take the small group leadership training when it is offered.
