Groups

Journey groups_16-9

We were designed for community, and Berkley First is happy to offer groups that meet online and in-person nearly every day of the week.  We have groups for parents, young adults, and adults of all ages.  Check out some of the offerings below and, if you have questions or are interested in starting up a new group, contact Pastor Rachael at rdunlap@berkleyfirst.org.

Evening Moms Group

All moms of all ages and all age children welcome! Come to learn, share wisdom and build relationships. We will study, “Boundaries with Kids” by Henery Cloud and John Townsend. This existing group welcomes new participants. Facilitated by Lindsay Gursky. Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 PM. In person at the Berkley Campus. 

 

Women’s Journey Group

This group is open to women of all ages. We will be going through the study “So Long, Normal” by Laura Story.January 11-Feb 8, 2022, 7:30 pm, in the Berkley Campus Sanctuary

Nothing about God and his story in Scripture is normal. The same God who created the universe calls us to something abnormal, a life experience beyond our fears and the things we cling to for comfort. We have all had our “normal” upended for almost two years. Join the Tuesday Journey Group at Berkley to learn from Laura Story, author, songwriter and Bible teacher, and from each other that leaving, loving and losing our “normal” is not the end of the world. Rather it is the beginning of a new adventure with God who longs to show us the possibilities of more when we let go and trust Him.

Dads Group

Facilitated by Pastor Zack Dunlap. We have two groups – one that meets the first and third Monday of each month and one on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Both are from 7:30-8:30 PM. Join us in-person or online at Berkley First.

A Time for Prayer

Singing Bowls
