Life Groups

Life Groups are MVBC's way of helping people connect relationally and grow spiritually by moving from rows in church to circles in homes. They are small groups of people (usually 12-16) who get together regularly to study some aspect of the Bible, while also getting to know each other.

This LifeGroup focuses on college age and young adults 35 and under. We meet, eat, discuss and pray together.

Bible Study – Bible Study for Women 
Leaders: Linda Gemmil  
Time: Thursdays, 9-11 AM 
Location: Gorslin home 
Studying: “Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break” 

Nehemiah's heart was so broken for those in need that he left the comfort of his Persian palace to help them. You'll find authentic Bible teaching, recipes, and a relational approach. Nehemiah also includes 7 video sessions and real-life ways to put feet to your faith. Are you ready to let God break your heart for a hurting, lost world and move you in compassion to be the hands and feet of Jesus?

Mending the Soul (Women)

This year we are offering a Mending the Soul (MTS) group for women. MTS groups are smaller than Life Groups (approximately 6-8 women), and are designed to provide support and help to those recovering from their experiences of abuse (whether sexual, physical, verbal, spiritual, or neglect and abandonment) or other relational challenges. The MTS group provides a safe and supportive environment for women to process the effects of past or current abuse. Due to the sensitive nature of MTS groups, a simple application and screening process is required. 

You can visit the Mending the Soul website for more detailed information about these groups or contact group leader Cathy Kerrey with any questions.
