*Small Groups at AMC
Currently there are three small groups that meet monthly:
Pioneer Crossing area, Mueller, and North (Round Rock).
Please review the calendar of events above for specific dates and times.
The purpose of the small group is to have a less formal setting with a small group of people where everyone has the opportunity to connect and share. Some folks think of these groups as house church.
The general format is food, discussion, sharing, and prayer.
You are welcome to be part of an AMC Small Group. Contact Pastor Lee if you are interested in attending.
Here’s a description of the gatherings:
North Small Group meets in Round Rock. Bring a dish to share. There will be discussion of a current topic, sharing, and prayer.
Mueller Small Group meets in the Mueller Neighborhood. Social sharing/informal discussion/sometimes gently guided. Food. Game playing.
Pioneer Crossing Small Group meets on the second (usually) Friday of each month at 6:30pm to share a simple potluck meal and engage with a topic for discussion after the meal. Currently the group is exploring short video clips of current well-known religious persons from the website The Work of the People: Films for Discovery and Transformation. The gathering ends with sharing and prayer.
