Get Plugged In - Join a Group

At SVA our goal is to help you find your place to BELONG.  It is in our belonging that we discover who we are in Christ and in community. SVA strives to be a community that encourages and nurtures everyone in their individual journey of transformation to become more like Christ, which leads us to being a community that brings God's kingdom here to earth.

You are invited to connect in one of our bible studies, book groups, or one of our parenting or marriage, or other educational classes. You may want to join our bible college students in a college-level BIOS class, offered as an audit or credit option.

You may choose to join one of our healing classes, or our recovery group, Project 180. Or you may want to join a community group, brought together by a common theme or life stage. Whether you are looking for a place to be known, to grow, to learn, to heal, or to connect, SVA has a place where you find you belong.

FAQ

What Types of Groups Do You Offer?
  • Community Groups - Small groups are a great context for transformation, drawing us closer to Christ and to one another. Hosts open their homes and provide hospitality for a group, while facilitators lead discussion and guide the group. Groups decide its own curriculum for each season. Fellowship, serving in the community and doing life together is the common denominator for these groups. Groups offerings have included groups for Sr’s, for young moms, for couples, men, women, varied life stages and more.
  • Classes and Bible Studies - Whether you want to know more about who God is, how to live life following after Him, or need some skills and tolls in other areas, SVA offer many different classes throughout the year. Class offerings have included parenting, financial, marriage, and some books. Bible Studies are led and facilitated by taking a group through a book of the bible.
  • Growth Groups - These groups are designed to experience what it means to be known, to know others and experience genuine love. Being involved in these types of relationships also provides the best context for spiritual growth as we learn from each other, have opportunities to explore and develop our gifts, reach beyond ourselves and make a difference in the lives of others. Class offerings have included Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, Project 180, Men’s and Women’s Support groups, and more.
What can I expect when I walk into an SVA Small group or class?

In our community groups, you will be welcomed into the host's home, along with a group of others. We know this can be scary the first time, so our host will reach out to you beforehand to let you know where to park, how to enter, etc. You will mingle with the other participants and then usually be guided through a conversation with a question to answer or thought to share. You may always choose to listen and not speak.

In our classes, you will usually have a book or curriculum to purchase for the class. You will be guided as to what chapter or questions to answer prior to coming to class. In class, there will be some teaching, as well as discussion with others in the class.

Can I join a bible study if I have never studied the bible?

YES! We encourage participants at any level of knowledge and experience to join our bible studies and classes. There is no better time than NOW to begin learning.
