Small groups are a great way to make the huge campus smaller and make meaningful friendships with people who can support you and pray for you during the semester. You will also learn something new and have a chance to grow deeper in your faith. Give one a try!
Growing Together Small Group, Mondays, 7:00 – 8:30 PM (postponed due to weather; resumes February 4th, 2019)
Get together each week with other students for good conversation and support. We spend time checking in, engaging with topics that the group chooses and praying for one another.

Led by LGBTQ+ members in our community, this is a space for queer people of faith to gather, connect, and support one another.

Bible Sprint, Thursdays, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM (begins January 31st, 2019)
In this small group setting, we will explore the Bible to gain a broad overview and a deeper understanding of how to read scripture. We will be reading through Peter Enns’ book, “The Bible Tells Me So.” Led by Pastor Erica.
Two+/Deacons ~ Mondays, 6:00 – 7:00 PM (resumes January 28th, 2019)
“Where two or more are gathered, I am there with them…” (Matthew 18:20)
At Pres House we practice connecting, knowing, and supporting one another to bear witness to Christ’s grace in our community. We do this through acts of encouragement and compassion, seeking to remind those in need that they are not alone. Join us to pray, write cards, deliver meals, and more as we engage in acts of love in service to the community.
Prayer^3, Wednesdays @ 6-6:30 PM (resumes January 23rd, 2019)
We believe that part of being a faithful follower of Jesus means we are called to pray for our community, nation, and world. We gather each week to pray in three ways in 10-minute segments: 1) becoming aware of what is going on in our world, 2) reflecting on scripture and asking God to guide us, 3) responding through various actions (i.e., calling legislators, writing letters to our neighbors).
Bake, Pray, Love ~ 1st & 3rd Tuesday baking, 6:30 – 8:30pm; Wednesday delivery 8:30am (Feb – April)
Twice a month we bake treats and share them with our neighbors the following morning.
