SMALL GROUPS

God designed us for community. Whether you feel like a “people-person” or not, we all need each other.
That’s why we have Small Groups; to find community where we can safely learn, grow, and experience the love of God.

At Austin Oaks, we believe that following Jesus in authentic relationships
with others is key to life transformation.

Each of our groups is unique, but all gather to engage with people, God’s Word,
and Jesus for the purpose of life transformation.

The Men’s Ministry at Austin Oaks Church equips men of all ages to be disciples who are fully alive to God and his purposes. Through Bible studies, retreats and special events, we aim to be men after God’s own heart and provide opportunities for community and fellowship, with a good portion of fun along the way!

Meets every Wednesday evening at 7PM in the CLC Triple Room (CLC105-107). On September 8, we will begin a video study of the Book of Hebrews. The first hour is dedicated to the video, then we will break up into small group discussions. Coffee, water and snacks are provided. Every man is welcome!
Contact Ted Anthony for more details.

MOTHERHOOD AND COMMUNITY (MACS)

PRECEPTS BIBLE STUDIES

MACs is a local mom’s ministry that journeys together through the joys and trials of motherhood. Through regular meetings, small group events, and the prayerful support of a dedicated leadership team, we work to equip moms to be the best they can be for their families.

Interested in joining? Click here for more information.

Precepts studies establish men and women in God's word using Inductive Bible Study. “Inductive” means we use the Bible as the primary source of study to learn about God and what the Bible teaches. Precept studies and training workshops are designed to equip you with inductive study tools so you can discover truth for yourself.

For details, contact Class Administrator, Kristen Douglass.
