Small Groups – Sunday Mornings at 9:30AM All Christians need a group of fellow believers who can come alongside them to strengthen and encourage. Here at Manley, we believe you can find that fellowship in our Small Groups. By making the connection in a small group, you are forming friendships and bonds with people who will share in your life struggles and victories. Our Sunday small groups are where true intimate ministry happens. This is where long-term relationships are built and care for each member is encouraged and experienced. We offer a wide variety of groups full of people who find themselves in different situations of life. Whether you are single, married, parenting, single again, or retired, there’s a place for you to make a connection and to be a part of the body of Christ. Our Mission as a church is for each person to be a fully developing follower of Jesus Christ. Being connected in a small group is a critical first step in achieving this Mission.

The Family Project Pastor Tony Buchanan Rm 214/216
Why do families work? Because God Himself designed them! Thriving families will lead to thriving communities, and thriving communities will transform the world. People will find purpose, joy and redemption; and generation after generation will create a positive legacy. The Family Project is a 12-session DVD experience that explores the theological, philosophical, and cultural underpinnings of the traditional family, and combines that information with inspiring stories and practical tools to help 21st-century families thrive. The Family Project also offers a hope-filled, optimistic antidote to the current landscape of familial breakdown, sending a clear message that a return to the time-tested, historical model of the family is where so many of our culture’s wounds begin to heal. It’s designed to develop a new appreciation for why family matters…based on a bigger understanding of who God is in His character and why He created humanity the way He did. Equipped with this information, viewers will also be exposed to a wealth of hands-on tools and resources to help them embrace those values within their own families and pass them along to future generations.
Love and Respect Dr. Dwayne Moore Rm 215 (begins Aug 12)
Love and Respect is a class for couples of all ages and at any stage of their marriage. Here is a quote from the introduction of the book to help you understand this study: “Do you want peace? Do you want to feel close to your spouse? Do you want to feel understood? Do you want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then try Love and Respect.” The study is grounded in the Word of God and was written by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. Your marriage will greatly benefit from this study!
Tally Ho the Fox Kenny Bailey Rm 201
What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? Herb Hodges answers this question in his book, “Tally Ho the Fox.” In this book, he masterfully examines the Word of God to provide foundations for building world visionary, world impacting, reproducing followers of Jesus Christ.
Armor of God Pam Graham Rm 229
A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
Comeback Boys of the Bible Rusty Connelly Rm 205
In today’s culture where millions of men are trying to recover from the economic downturn, financial problems, shattered dreams and family issues, a strong word of encouragement is needed! Former NFL quarterback Neal Jeffrey delivers in this new study for men as he shows them how to get up from the knockdowns of life. A “game-changing” Bible study for men. This 7 week study examines the lives of men in the Bible who have fallen and how God put their lives back together.
Divorce Care Larry & Diana Boggess Rm 212
This support group is for those recovering from divorce. Topics that will be addressed are key issues everyone struggles with during and after a separation or divorce. Group members will learn once again what it means to be loved and will rediscover the purpose of life. The Divorce Care group and videotapes help people deeply hurt by divorce to heal, to develop a hope for the future. You are encouraged to become active and committed to your Divorce Care group, and look expectantly at what God can do in your life!
ESL for Internationals Danny & Jan Hinson TBA
This is an informal class where internationals can learn conversational English.
Grief Share Tim & Lisa Balough Rm 203 (Starting August 12)
It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. Grief Share is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time. Each Grief Share session includes a video seminar and group discussion. A Grief Share workbook assists you with note-taking, journaling and grief study. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief and real-life stories of people who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences and share your own. Grief Share is a nondenominational group and features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics.
