Small Group for Veterans
December 14th, 2017
Veterans of all ages and life stages, as well as military family members, are invited to connect every other week on Thursday evenings at 1900 [7PM] to discuss life experiences and veteran's issues. Our first meeting will be on Thursday, October 5 in the Volunteer Lounge at Encounter.
Everything discussed in the group is confidential. Often times only another veteran, or a close family member of a veteran, can relate to and understand what someone else has to share. We seek to provide one another with hope, encouragement, and camaraderie as we grow to become more like Jesus.
Questions? Contact group leader Aaron Cook at email@example.com

Read Through the Bible in a Year Group
December 18th - September 17th, 2018
Have you ever thought about committing to read through the whole Bible? This group will provide accountability as we make a habit of reading four chapters of the Bible [about 20min] a day for a whole year independently. The group will gather to share what God is showing you twelve times throughout the year, on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:30PM.
We'll be going through the Bible chronologically, which is a little different than the book order in most Bibles. The first meeting is Monday, Oct 16 at 7:30PM at the VanEyk home [5496 W Heathwood Dr SE, Kentwood.]
Questions? Contact group leader Dirk VanEyk at email@example.com
