B-Street Small Groups

Since the start of the church, Christians have gathered in large groups and in small groups for discipleship, fellowship, worship, evangelism, and ministry. (Acts 2: 46-47) Here at BSUMC, our goal is to provide new opportunities for people to grow in their faith together. Small Groups are not just traditional Bible studies- they can be anything you want them to be!

Whether it is through a book study or fellowship group, or even a leisure group, there are so many great ways to get connected to others. Each group has a different meeting schedule and this is not a replacement of Sunday School.  Once you know what group you are interested in, click the “Sign me up!” button under each study and register with your information. The group facilitator will contact you with more information closer to the start date. For a physical signup card, please visit the church office. 

Fall 2022 Small Groups begin the week of September 25 unless otherwise stated in the Handbook or the Small Group Registration. 

Small Groups Handbook – Fall 2022

Sunday Groups

"A New Playlist: Hearing Jesus in a Noisy World" is a study of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Many of us go through our days with ear buds in place, listening to our favorite songs or podcasts to the exclusion of everything going on around us. What if we did the same thing when living our lives, choosing to listen to Jesus’ playlist and tuning out the anxiety, disruptions, and schedule overloads of the world?

Monday Groups

Discover Jesus' character through the "I Am" statements in Jesus, revealed by pastor and author Matt Rawle in "Jesus Revealed". Rawle explores the "I Am" statements in John as works of art that resonate throughout the Gospel and all of Scripture. He shows how these words point beyond themselves to the deep mystery of Jesus Christ. Experience the profound truth at the heart of the "I Am" statements: that Jesus is light and life, and he calls us to himself and offers us the hope of resurrection.
