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

Wellspring Small Groups

Engage with others around the spiritual practices that can renew, deepen and enrich your life. Based on the book, Renew Your Life: Discovering the Wellspring of God’s Energy by Pastor Kai Nilsen, these small groups will discover new places of refreshment and growth, drawing from the wellspring of the Holy Spirit. You’ll find it helpful to take time for short, easy-to-read chapters in the book and to try out a new faith practice, along the way. 

After talking about the many ways we become depleted, the book explores the how the Holy Spirit brings us renewable energy through grace, possibility, paradox, the natural world, relationships, fruitful work, rest and trust in God.  The book is filled with stories that will connect with our stories, while grounded in grace and God’s word in Scripture. In a Wellspring Small Group, you’ll also have a chance to meet others and learn from their insights and experiences with the faith practices. 

Groups will take place in January and February 2020 on a variety of days and times, meeting just 4 times. If you’re traveling during this time, contact Denise Floe to find a group that works with your schedule. 

There is no cost to participate and each group member will receive a copy of the book, Renew Your Life. 

For more information or to express interest, contact Denise Floe at dfloe@incarnationmn.org or 651-484-7213. 

Beatitudes Small Group

Once a month on Thursdays, 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. from October – May 

This small group is a chance to dig deeper into the meaning and less-obvious messages of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12 and Luke 6:20-26) and discover practical ways to live a simpler, yet more spiritually engaged life. The group will read and talk about the book, The Power of a Focused Heart: 8 Life Lessons from the Beatitudes by Mary Lou Redding, while connecting with one another.  

Mary Lou Reading writes that “the Beatitudes are not easy sayings we can glibly incorporate into our way of life. Like so much of what Jesus said, they invite us to move beyond first impressions and surface meanings. They challenge us to explore.” The book speaks to the blessings that can be found in surprising places and ways to make a difference for others and more closely follow Jesus. 

Before each gathering, group members will read short, do-able chapters. The group will meet once a month for a guided conversation on the chapter and how to incorporate Jesus’ teachings into daily life. Group leader: Meg Gerlach. Suggested contribution: $5. Register: dfloe@incarnationmn.org or 651-484-7213.
