Our Small Groups are designed to be missional, transformational and relational. They change us, help us grow, and get us to go out and do good in the world.

Small Groups typically consist of 8-12 people who commit to dig deeper into their faith and their faith journeys together as a group. For more information, please contact Rev. Kirsty DePree or Baleta McKenzie at (212) 686-2770, or stop by during Coffee Hour on Sundays after Worship.

If you love coming to church but can sometimes find yourself getting lost in the crowd, or if you yearn for a deeper connection with the people you see on Sundays and often leave worship wanting to discuss the message with others, but don't know where to begin – then our Small Groups are for you! They bring people together to study God’s Word, to share their stories, build community and have fun together. By joining a Small Group, you can equip yourself with the spiritual tools to put your faith in action.

In Matthew 18:20 Jesus says, "For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them." Consider gathering with a Marble Small Group.

Reclaiming Anger

As Christians, we process grief, show love, understand compassion and accept forgiveness. But when it comes to anger we often reject it as not being useful or holy. There is simply no place for anger in the worldview of many Christians. We are told to just ”let it go” “get over it” or “count to ten”. In the church anger is treated like a dirty little secret. But Why? Let’s talk about it.

Meets Sundays at 9:30 to 10:45am. Starting January 22 & 29 and February 5. FREE of charge.

Waiting for Wonder: Learning to Live on God's Timeline

It is easy to believe in God when a promise is new and bubbling with life. It is hard when the years pass and nothing changes – to keep praying and hoping when your plan backfires and still God does not fill the emptiness. But what if God is calling you to more? Author Marlo Schalesky reveals the wonder that is often missed, by walking through the life of the biblical character Sarah, one who knows what it means to wait.

Meets Sundays at 12:30 to 2:00pm. Starting January 22 & 29 and February 5, 12, 19 & 26. FREE of charge.
