New Small Groups

Small groups are places to CONNECT – to grow closer to God, to connect with other people, and to share in a faith study or enjoy a common interest together. Learn more.

New small groups start at various times during the year. In addition to the groups listed here, spring and summer small groups are in the planning stages right now. Check back for the latest information. To find out more or to sign up for a group contact Denise Floe at dfloe@incarnationmn.org or 651-484-7213.

Connecting in Grace Small Groups

Daytime:  Wednesdays, 9:30 – 11:00 a.m., June – August.
Evening:  Tuesdays, 6 – 7:30 p.m., June – August.

Close to 200 people took part in a Connecting in Grace group at Incarnation in the past year – and you can join them this summer!

Engage in meaningful conversations to connect faith and life, while you connect with other people too. New Connecting in Grace small groups get together to take a deeper dive into themes that are at the heart of faith – grace, love, hunger, discovery, relationships, generosity, service and worship. What does God say about living into these themes today? When or where do we wrestle with the inherent challenges? Is there any guidance, grace and hope?

New small groups will get together around a new faith study, Connecting in Grace: Filled by God’s Grace. The faith study is written at Incarnation, mindful of the joys and challenges faced by people who live and work in our community today. The themes are drawn from Incarnation’s new Mission, Vision and Values statement and the group conversation is a chance to explore how each theme is lived out in our own lives and across the community.

Included in the faith study are short videos from the website, The Work of the People, featuring well-known Christian writers and speakers on each theme. Each gathering also includes a reflection from an Incarnation writer, including Joel VanderWal, Janet Karvonen Montgomery, Jeanne Hartfield, Gary Medin, Becky Benson, Denise Floe, and Lynda Thompson.

Casual Biking Fellowship Group for Adults

Seven Saturdays, 8:30 a.m. -12:00 p.m., June – September.

Enjoy being out in God’s beautiful creation on summer Saturday mornings. Bike at a casual pace, while experiencing creation and connecting with others who enjoy biking. This small group will take easy to moderate trails around the Twin Cities, taking a break mid-point for a devotion and prayer led by the group leaders. See and hear the sights and sounds of local trails, including the group’s fun, informal conversations.

This group will bike for 2-3 hours, covering up to 20 miles (approximately 10 mph). There will also be a one-time service project to support the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf together as a group. Besides a bike, riders will want to bring a helmet, water, cell phone, sunscreen, and a spare tire tube. Group members will need to drive to and meet at each trailhead. Men and women are welcome. While space is limited, this fellowship biking group will be a slightly larger size than most small groups. Leaders: Julie Omland and Claudia Wiebold. Register at dfloe@incarnationmn.org.

Cycling Fellowship Group for Adults

Five Saturdays, 8 – 11:30 a.m., June – August.

Are you eager to explore bike trails in the Twin Cities with others who enjoy cycling? Do you typically ride for several hours at a time, enjoying the opportunity to get in a good workout? This group cycles together on five Saturdays, for 20-25 miles (up to 14 mph). The group also takes part in devotions and prayer at the trailhead or on a break. Cyclists pace themselves at a comfortable speed, rather than riding as a single group. The group is designed for cyclists who are ages 18 and above.

The leader will select a new route for each gathering, with ideas from the group. Cyclists meet at the route starting point, and must provide their own transportation. Besides a bike, cyclists are asked to bring a helmet, water, snack, cell phone, sunscreen, and tire repair kit. While space is limited, this fellowship cycling group will be a slightly larger size than most small groups. Register at dfloe@incarnationmn.org.

Monday Morning Small Group for Men

Mondays, 6:30 – 7:30 a.m., once or twice a month.

Start your week by connecting with God and deepening your faith. Join a small group for men, gathering once or twice a month on Monday morning from 6:30 – 7:30 a.m.  The group takes part in a facilitated conversation using a faith study written for small groups at Incarnation, Connecting in Grace: Radical Gifts, Radical Grace. Led by Tim Gray, the group is a chance to connect your faith with your daily life and start your week centered on your faith.
