You may be new to First Presbyterian Church VR, or a long-time member, but if you are not part of a Small Group, you are missing out!
These small groups meet in homes, at the church, and at various times to foster a vibrant community of friendships where you can: connect with others, discuss God’s truth and work out how it applies, encourage and pray together, develop your gifts through serving, and invite non-believers to investigate real Christianity. Small Groups focus on developing stronger disciples through spending time in the Word, prayer, and fellowship. We hope you will embrace this crucial part of your spiritual journey.
Small Groups, Various Days and Times:
Sunday Morning Bible Study, 9:30 AM-10:30 AM: These Sunday morning bible studies at the church are for all adults and a great place to get to know one another. Each study begins with a time of coffee, sometimes treats, and always a great place to hang out until 9:45 when the study begins.

Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.“
These words of Jesus tell us that we are to be about making disciples of all people groups. That is all people of all backgrounds and all cultures. Community Small Groups are a safe place for everyone to find out more about Jesus.
