Learn About Valley Simsbury Groups!

There are two plug-in points here at Valley Simsbury: Worship and Groups. We encourage everyone to join a group, where you can connect with others and grow spiritually.

We have three different kinds of groups. They're explained below, but first, watch this introductory video from Pastor Mark:

Group Descriptions & Sign-Ups

Topic Groups

Topic groups meet in person or online via Zoom for a specific number of weeks (usually 6-13). These groups focus on a specific topic of study or relevant life matter.

Current Topic Groups

The Perspectives Course

Perspectives is a 15-week course about God’s plan to reconcile every people, tribe, nation, and tongue to Himself. You’ll hear from a different instructor each week as we take an in-depth look at missions from four perspectives: biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic. You’ll learn about God’s plan of redemption from Genesis to the present, and the how YOU fit into it. 

There are three different levels of enrollment to choose from (Key Reading, Certificate, or Credit) with the option to attend in-person at Valley Avon or online via Zoom. Everyone is welcome to attend the first two weeks for free before committing to the course. 

Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., January 19 - May 11, 2021, Valley Avon

divorce Care

Those who've experienced it will tell you that separation and divorce are among the most painful and stressful experiences they've ever faced. It's a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you may never have encountered before. We're here to help.

Our next, 13-week group begins Monday, March 1 at 7 p.m. at Valley Simsbury, 3 Mill Pond Lane. The cost for the workbook is $10. Registration is required.

PRAYER GROUP

Coming soon.

Neighbor Groups

Neighbor Groups are for the entire family and meet at homes (currently outdoors). They focus on the second great commandment – “love your neighbor” – which means loving each other and teaming together to love the people where we live, work, and play. Examples of what Neighbor Groups do or focus on:

EATING TOGETHER
Whether potluck, prepared by the host, or ordering in, eating together builds trust and community. The goal is an extended-family environment.

SHARING STORIES
Discuss the message that was preached on Sunday or share personal faith stories. The goal is to encourage one another in spirit and truth.

BLESSING OTHERS
Each week, ponder who needs the tangible touch of God (blessing) in our church or your relational networks. Then make concrete plans to bless.

PRAYING FOR POWER
As you share about your lives and ponder who God is sending you to bless, seek God for his anointing, provision and power.

D.N.A. Groups

D.N.A. Groups are smaller gatherings of 3-5 people of the same gender who dig deep into life together. Groups “Discover” God’s truth, provide “Nurture” in the difficult and daily matters of life, and encourage each other to “Act” on the steps God’s Spirit is encouraging them in.
