There is a place for you at Sardis! Our small group ministry offers different ways to connect in fellowship, study, and serving.
Dinner groups will meet once a month for dinner and fellowship in February through June. You will get to meet with the same group all Spring. In the Fall, everyone will have the opportunity to sign up again and the groups will be reshuffled so that you can get to know others in the Sardis community. Questions? Contact Don Glefke
SPARK (Sardis Parents All Raising Kids)
Parents who have children age 0 through elementary school are invited to join us during the Sunday School hour for a new community group opportunity led by Emily and Mike Oelz. We meet at 10 a.m. in Room 203. Our group will focus on building community, sharing our lives of parenting and faith, and praying together. In January each family will be given a copy of “To Light Their Way” by Kayla Craig, a collection of prayers and liturgies for parents, which will guide our discussions and prayers.
Mustard Seed Groups
Mustard Seed Groups are part of Sardis’ small group ministry. People meet for fellowship, Bible study, service projects, and prayer. The groups are led by a trained leader. Each group chooses the topic of its study and the nature of its service or outreach projects. If you’d like more information on joining a Mustard Seed Group, contact Rev. Allysen Schaaf.
Circles are designed for women to join together in Bible study, fellowship, and service. They encourage one another in shared experience as woman of faith.
