|Adult Bible Fellowship and Sunday School
In a small group Bible study you can experience Christian fellowship, learn about the life changing message of Jesus Christ, share in meeting the needs of others, and participate in worship.
At Groveton, elementary-age children and middle and high school students are grouped by school grades. Early childhood classes are grouped by age and development. Adults are grouped by life-stage and interests in Bible Fellowship groups. Groveton also has a group for special-needs adults.
Bible study groups have open enrollment. One can join anytime during the year! The studies are foundational and practical. No prior knowledge or experience with Bible study is needed. Colorful Bible study materials are provided free of charge.

Sunday Evening Groups
Celebrate Recovery for Women - Celebrate Recovery - The purpose of Celebrate Recovery, a Christian Bible-based approach to recovery, is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through eight recovery principles based on the Beatitudes in a Christ-centered twelve (12) step program. By working through the principles, we grow spiritually, and we are freed from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. We will also work with you to help you find a compatible sponsor and accountability partners to help you on your road to recovery. Celebrate Recovery is the right place to be for anyone struggling with depression, anger, anxiety, stress, alcoholism, drug addiction, or other chemical dependencies, sexual issues or sex addiction, stress, fear, co-dependence, food addiction, compulsive behavior, and many other hurts, habits, and hang-ups.
Neither the Celebrate Recovery Ministry Leader nor the Small Group Leaders will attempt to provide professional clinical advice. Our leaders are not counselors or therapists, but the church can provide contact information for Christian counselors in our area so you may pursue counseling or therapy if you so choose. Meets Sunday evenings at 5 PM - Use Door B.
Financial Peace University - Sunday evenings at 5:00 PM featuring the teaching of Dave Ramsey via DVD - Use Door B.
