Pursuing Christ Through Community
Groups and Studies
Groups are vital to building community at our church. Groups typically meet weekly at the group leader’s home, or the church building, and come together to study a certain topic. Whether you’re looking to grow deeper in your faith through in depth biblical study, or you’re still exploring your faith, we’re confident that we have a group for you.
In studies, you’ll have an opportunity for in-depth biblically-based study on a range of topics. Studies are held at the church, and are usually more instructional than group gatherings, though they are not lectures. Studies repeat, so you have the opportunity to take different ones throughout the year.
At Pleasant Hills Church we believe in discipleship. We believe in helping each other grow to be more like Christ. That’s why we’ve developed a curriculum of studies designed for young adults and adults, that focuses on biblical discipleship. These studies aren’t reserved for the “spiritual elite” though, they’re for everyone: Parents, college students, businesspeople, teachers, anyone who wants to grow in their faith.
