We all need people in our lives who can give us advice, help us through hard times, laugh with us, and help us grow.

Groups are a great way for you to become connected with other believers in our church and find community. Groups are simply smaller groups of people who do life together outside of church.

So how do you find a Group? At Bedford Alliance, we have several open Groups that you can join at any time.

Browse our open Groups below to find a Group that fits you and to sign up!

Summit for Retirees – Gary & Cheryl Meinhart

That the World May Know
Tuesday 1:00-3:00 pm
Bedford Alliance Church Connect Room (enter South Door B)

Summit is a group for people in the same stage of life – retired. Every week, we spend time watching videos from a series called “That the World May Know.” These illuminating faith lessons afford a new understanding of the Bible that will ground your convictions and transform your life. After the video, we spend time in discussion as a group.

Aside from these weekly discussion times, we also have regular lunches and events outside of the church. Retirement doesn’t mean stopping!

Co-ed Group (Young Married Couples) – Brian & Rachel Pearch

The Mingling of Souls by Matt Chandler
Every other Wednesday 7:00-9:00 pm
Leader’s home (Petersburg, MI)

The Song of Solomon offers strikingly candid—and timeless—insights on romance, dating, marriage, and sex. We need it. Because emotions rise and fall with a single glance, touch, kiss, or word. And we are inundated with songs, movies, and advice that contradicts God’s design for love and intimacy.

Matt Chandler helps navigate these issues by revealing the process Solomon himself followed: Attraction, Courtship, Marriage … even Arguing. The Mingling of Souls will forever change how you view and approach love.

Genesis, Part 1: The Creation by Precept upon Precept

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” What does this really mean, and how does it affect your daily life? When you immerse yourself in the biblical account of creation, you will be led to know your Creator in deeper ways, increasing your awe of Him.

Genesis, Part One: The Creation explores the biblical account of creation found in chapters one and two, how the world was created, and how man came into being.

*A Bible is required for this group (physical or digital), and it is recommended that the Bible be ESV or NASB. Group participants must pay $10 for a workbook.
