Small Groups

Developing relationship with God and others allows us to live a flourishing life. One in which we love one another, and grow in our friendship with the Divine God. Small Groups are a place to practice and do just this.

Duluth Dinner Group

Last Tuesdays @ 5:30pm

Tuesday, February 25
@ Dovetail Cafe
1917 W Superior St, Duluth

There will be lots of space for many and lots of yummy things to eat and drink.

When we look at Jesus, we see the way he’s always inviting us into doing life together. Let’s get together once a month to share a meal and connect around a table or some couches.

We really believe community is gold. So come—share a meal, share your heart, or share a couch with a stranger who might end up being a really good friend.

Dinner location will change each month.

So come—share a meal, share your heart, or share a couch with a stranger who might end up being a really good friend.

PiYo class is a 1 hour workout that is choreographed to music. It is a combination of Pilates and Yoga moves, although it is NOT either. (It is a “no om” zone!).

This is truly a class for all fitness levels, as all of the moves can be modified or enhanced for each person.

The cost is $8 per class or $30 to commit to all 4 classes of the month.

No need to register — just show up with a mat, water bottle and a small towel.

Whiteness 101

Mike and Melissa Heyndericks
218.213.6315 (Mike)

Tuesdays @ 7-9pm
Starts February 25 for 8-10 weeks
141 N Cloquet Road W, Esko

Black lives matter, affirmitive action, reverse racism, white supremacy — These are all highly charged topics evoking big emotions on all sides. It can often be very difficult to have conversations about race, especially for white people who often have not had to think about how the idea of race has shaped all of our lives here in America.

This discussion group is an introduction to concepts like white identity, white supremacy, and white fragility. There will be room for up to 10 participants. There will be required reading each week. Materials are free and from the organization, Be the Bridge.
