Discussion Groups

It's like a Book Club, Online
Have you ever wanted to discuss a book with others? Have you considered the possibilities that an on-line book group might provide: a measure of accountability, a more structured format for daily devotions, or an opportunity to share your thoughts and insights with others. We hope that group members will get to know each other and consider praying for each other as they study these valuable books together. If you have any questions about the book groups, please e-mail Ken Verhulst.

Join a group
Before subscribing to a group, please click the group's title and read its page for expectations of members and any special instructions. Then click the 'subscribe' link.

Lead a group
Are you willing to be a group leader? We need group leaders before we can open new groups. Please e-mail the moderator if you ...

  • Would be willing to lead a book group for a particular book
  • Would like to suggest a book as a possible book group title
  • Have suggestions, ideas, and tips for organizing on-line book study groups. What do you think works well and what doesn't? We are still learning and would love your feedback.
