Being a part of a small group is a blessing. We hope that during your time at Pennway you can find authentic Christian community in one of our many groups. Take some time to look through the various groups we offer. If you don’t know what group would be a good fit for you, just let us know and we will help you find one. You can contact Pastor John with questions regarding Groups (email@example.com).
Many of our Groups take time off during the summer, but we will still have some great opportunities for you to plug into a Group.

We will be using the phone app by Francis Chan called “Read Scripture” as our guide for the outline of this group. We will read through the Bible together and then each week discuss the stories and encourage each other with the truth we see in them. If you have never read the Bible before or have done so many times, this group will be helpful for you. The Bible is the best selling book every year. Let’s check it out together. Led by Pastor John.
