Bible study and small groups are a great way to get to know folks at church better while at the same time getting to know the Lord better! We have groups for men, women, couples and anybody who wants to come! Please join us and dig a little deeper into the Bible as well as your relationships.



You will love being in a Grove Group—a small group that meets monthly to explore scripture chosen to spark conversation. We talk about the verses, how it relates to our lives at this moment and how it can lead us to think about our life or faith in a different way. There are groups for couples and groups for singles who don’t have a spouse or who have a spouse who is not yet up for a small group. Grove Groups usually meet for about an hour of Bible study and then have a potluck meal together, usually just three times in three months. The dates and times are up to you and your group. They’re a great way to experience a small group Bible study, get to know some other PCLG members and have some fun!

Join a Grove Group—they’re where community takes root! For more information or to let us know you’re interested, e-mail

Bible Studies:

Studies have included the books of John, Jonah, Ruth, Psalms, Revelation and more.


Christian Book Studies:

We have read Seeds by Thomas Merton, and The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, and The Muslim Next Door by Sumbul Ali-Karamalia among others.


DVD Lessons: Recent videos such as Never Put a Period Where God Puts a Comma by Nell Mohney, and Making the Most of Your Marriage by Kevin Leman, have led to interesting, supportive discussion.


Social Activities:

We enjoy getting together socially from time to time for activities like hiking, yoga, coffee and dinner parties.


Mission Projects:

We have made meals for homeless shelters, assembled layettes for needy mothers and participated in clothing and blanket drives. We support our WOW members in times of need (e.g. when there is a new baby in the family or an ill family member, etc.) through phone calls, prayers, providing meals and/or help with childcare.

MINOW Men's Bible Study

We have a men’s study in person and via Zoom each Wednesday morning at 6:30 a.m. This group, called MINOW, Men In Need Of Wisdom, is, much like our Presbyterian church, run by its members! We take turns leading the weekly study, and when the current study topic nears completion, together we choose the next. 
The choice of reading is quite interesting and varied. Please reach out ( to be added to the weekly invite.
