Leader Resources

  • Planning Center's "Group App"

    If you are currently leading a group - or if you are planning to lead a group - you can manage your group's online profile (found on this website under the "Current and Upcoming Groups" tab) by using Planning Center's "Group App." You can use this app to update information about your group, invite new group members through email, use a "drop-box" feature to share documents, and communicate with group members through email. Keeping this profile up-to-date can make it super easy for new people to join your group.

    To manage your group's profile, first Alec has to change a setting to make you a “Group Leader” on the App. If you can’t manage your group, it might be because this setting hasn’t been changed yet. E-mail Alec so he can do that. But, once you’ve been made a group’s Leader, you can simply go to to find your group’s page and begin using its features. Or follow this Link.

  • The Bible Project

    The Bible Project's Mission is "to show how the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus." They produce short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. They create videos, podcasts, and study guides that explore the Bible’s unified story. 

    They explain how the Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people, ultimately pointing us to Jesus, who has the power to change individuals and whole communities when we let the biblical story speak for itself.

    They focus on the Bible's overarching themes and each book’s literary design and are committed to understanding the Bible in its historical context.

    Click on the icon to the left to watch a short video that explains more about their mission and work. And check out their videos at or on YouTube.

  • Small Groups' Library

    We have an extensive library of resources at the church to help you and your group grow. In fact, there is a special Small Groups' Resource Library at the back of the church staff office that Group Leaders are encouraged to use! This library is full of bible study and small group resources. Alec would be thrilled to give you a tour and help you find any resources you're looking for! (Contact info below).
