Women’s Group: Church of the Small Things.

When: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 PM, 6 weeks, starts June 7. 

Where: Trinity Lutheran Fellowship Hall.

We will be studying "Church of the Small Things" by Melanie Shankle. 

It's been said, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away." The pressure of that can be staggering as we spend our days looking for that big thing that promises to take our breath away. Meanwhile, we lose sight of the small significance of fully living with every breath.
The million little pieces that make a life aren't necessarily glamorous or far-reaching. But God uses some of the smallest, most ordinary acts of faithfulness—and sometimes they look a whole lot like packing lunch.
Through humorous stories told in her signature style, the unexpected grace that comes when we quit trying to measure up, and a little of the best TV has to offer, Melanie helps women embrace what it means to live a simple, yet incredibly meaningful life and how to find all the beauty and laughter that lies right beneath the surface of every moment."

Cost: $10.00. Scholarship available upon request.

Men’s Group: Jesus's Farewell Message.

When: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 PM, starts June 7.

Where: Avenue Church Office.

Do you know Jesus? It's one thing to know facts about him, but to experience his love, wisdom, and guidance in your life is what it means to follow him. On the night before he was crucified, Jesus invited his disciples into a deep relationship with the triune God—and his
invitation stands for us too. In this 6-part series, Francis Chan dives into John 13-17, a passage rich in promises, commands, and eternal truths. He'll remind us we aren't called to a part-time faith—we were made to know, walk with, and commune with God.

Small Groups have one, simple purpose—to bring people together.

We believe God created us to live in community with others and only then can we experience the full life He intends for us. We believe life change happens in the context of Relationships.
Meaningful relationships can be hard to find, and Small Groups exist to make life-changing

relationships  relevant and accessible to you.
"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."


We believe our church must grow larger and smaller at the same time.

We grow larger to reach as many people as possible with the life-giving message of Jesus.

We gather in Small Groups to build community and care for people.

"Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching

and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah."
ACTS 5:42

Small Groups offer people:

1. A Place to connect
"Yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so

that he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him."

We were not made to do life alone. God created us for community, and Small Groups

provide a place to connect with others, share life, and grow in faith together.

2. A Place to protect
"We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So

we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters."
1 JOHN 3:16 NLT

It is through life together that our problems become smaller, and God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives. Small Groups become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.


2. A Place to GROW
"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."

We believe every person is created with God-given potential to make a difference in the world. Small Groups are a place you can grow with others to become more like Jesus and reach the potential God has put inside you.
