It takes a lot of counter-cultural effort to build real community in our day and age, but community is the context in which discipleship and God’s Kingdom are lived out.
All of life is better together — eating out, going to a movie, attending a conference, seeing your favorite band — it’s all made exponentially better when we experience it together. The same is true of faith. Below is a listing of our current small groups.
Hosts: Kevin & Marcus and Stacey Phipps
This isn’t a women’s group, nor a men’s group, nor a couple’s group … it’s just-a-group. Meets 2nd & 4th Sundays 6-8pm. Babysitting available. Location alternates between Kevin & Marcus’ (1017 River Commons Dr. Knightdale, NC 27545) and Stacey Phipps’ (3101 Stone Gap Court, Raleigh, NC 27612).
Raleigh Men (evening)
Host: Curtis Mulder
Meeting on alternating Thursday nights 8-9:30pm. Location varies. More details can be found at our Ekklesia Men’s Facebook page.
Northwest Raleigh Women
Leader/Host: Holly Stephens
A study based on Jen Hatmaker’s book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess. Meets every other Monday from 7:30-9pm at Holly Stephens’ home home in North Raleigh (1108 Toppe Ridge Court).
Thursday AM Women's Group
Leader/Host: Beth Belford
A new weekly women’s small group at the home of Beth Belford (2013 Sierra Drive, Raleigh, NC 27603). The group is kid-friendly but not just for moms—all ladies welcome! No specific agenda. No homework. Just come hang out 🙂 Coffee & snacks provided.
