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 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.

Below you will find a listing of our current Small Groups. You may register online for the groups with the links below. Please note: listing is subject to change.

Books for the groups are available for purchase from MarbleVision in the Marble Loft on Sundays.

Sacred Compass

Richard Foster, the author, says “ Brent Bill has written one of the finest books on discernment and divine guidance that I have seen in a long time”. Spiritual Discernment is more about sensing God’s gracious presence than it is about making the right decisions. Drawing on the quiet beauty of the Quaker path Sacred Compass offers a fresh way of living a God-directed life.

Book: Sacred Compass by J. Brent Bill & foreward by Richard J. Foster.

Your Journey to a Prayerful Life

We won’t become people of prayer accidentally. We won’t slip one day and fall into a prayer life. We need to learn to pray. This takes training, patience and persistence and we need a teacher, coach to keep us learning and growing as we continue to pray. Think of Barbara Schutt as your track coach during this study. (forward by Martha Grace Reese). Workbooks available for sale $10.00.

The Empowered Woman

Wherever you are in life, make the next part the best and most fulfilling that it can be. Being empowered is also being liberated from whatever might be holding you back or blocking your way. We will work together to find your way, find your empowerment and be the woman who glows from within with confidence and assurance.

Braving The Wilderness

True Belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. True belonging is not fitting in, pretending or making the people around us comfortable because it is safer. True belonging require us to be vulnerable, get uncomfortable and learn how to be with people without sacrificing who we are and what we value. Books available for sale in the Marble Loft.
