SMALL GROUPS

At MBC we emphasize the importance of enriching our understanding of what it means to be a follower of God. While Worship and Bible Study are the foundations of this journey, we also recognize the significant impact of connecting intimately with small groups of fellow believers to grow with God and others through Bible-based discussions, shared life experience, and prayer support.

 

At Magnolia Bible Church we call our small groups Community Life Groups, or CLGs. These groups are all different, but they all share a love of God. ​

ALL AGES & STAGES

Our CLG is dedicated to building relationships, getting to know one another, and encouraging each other to live for Jesus through the challenges of life. We will meet the 3rd Saturday  of each month from 6-8 pm starting in January 2019. Dinner will be provided. Elementary and up children are welcome!

YOUNG MARRIED

Anderson

We are passionate about marriage! Our small group will focus on building and supporting young marriages. We will fortify marriages by walking alongside one another in fellowship, prayer, and application of God’s principles for marriage.

ALL AGES & STAGES

Our small group meets twice a month on Friday nights, the Fridays vary. This is a highly informal fellowship group that includes children, lots of teens, some young adults, and copious amounts of food, often on the grill. We have a lot of fun, and believe in iron sharpening iron in daily relationships.

ALL AGES & STAGES

Vest/Melara

Week-in and week-out, we will work to know each other more deeply — sharing our hearts and lives, praying for one another, asking questions, and bearing each other’s burdens. With everything we learn — we will strive to love and serve one another — meeting each other’s needs, encouraging growth, and helping one another thrive. All ages are welcome, and childcare is available. We meet  after service on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.

OLDER SINGLES & EMPTY NESTERS

Our CLG is geared toward older/retired couples, single, divorced and widowed people.  We meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month right after church at our house. Our format is more just enjoying a great meal together, hanging out and fellowshipping and having a brief time of prayer for any requests that our guests may have. Main dish provided.
