We know that gathering in small groups of believers is vital to our process of being disciples of Jesus. Jesus was always meeting with the discipleship to pray, reflect, and study together. There are a number of ways to participate in small groups at Tabernacle.
Discipleship Groups for adults are offered on on Wednesday evenings in the Spring and Fall while children and youth are participating in Bible Study/Worship Arts. These groups are generally 8-15 people who commit to a season of spiritual conversation and prayer together. Discipleship groups are facilitated by church staff, ministry leaders, and community experts who create holy space for learning, deep reflection, and spiritual growth. These groups typically last between 10-12 weeks. Some of our previous groups have included Spirituality & the 12 Steps, Women’s Spirituality Group, Islam and Christianity: An Inter Religious Dialogue, Introduction to Spiritual Practices, Men’s Spirituality Group.
Small Groups at Tabernacle
Home-based Small Groups are also a part of the life and rhythm of Tabernacle. These groups meet weekly in members’ homes throughout the city, and two groups meet at the church building on Sundays and Tuesdays. Small Groups are intergenerational by design-they include young adults, singles, couples, families with children and youth, and empty-nesters. Each group has it’s own culture, but most groups participate in some form of Bible Study together and pray together regularly. Currently we have groups in Richmond’s Northside, West End, Ginter Park, and The Fan.
Our list of Small Groups is always changing as new needs within the church arise. Please fill out the Small Group Interest Form and we will be in touch with you about a group near you!
