Neo Church


Small Groups

Why Join one of NEO's Small Groups?

We were created for community.

When people gather to intentionally study God's Word together, true friendships are built. Small Groups are how we establish community at NEO Church. If you want to get plugged into a body of believers, make new friends, or simply grow closer to God, Small Groups are for you. Non-threatening, social, and focused. When you attend, you can be assured the group will be warm and inviting. The leader will give your group discussion opportunities and help you understand what Scripture is saying. Our goal is that you will come away knowing more of God and His Word.  Open. Feel free to bring a friend, or request to join a group that's already taking place. Small groups run Spring, Fall and Summer. There are a wide selection of groups, those specific to gender, co-ed, married couples, topics, or special interests. Whatever the type of group you choose to participate in, you can be sure its primary focus will be on sharing biblical truth and wisdom while building community with other believers.

Study Description:  Can the Genesis account of creation really be true?  Did God really make everything we see, hear, experience and encounter in 6 days?  Was there an Adam and Eve?  Was there a great flood?  Or as “intelligent” Christians, are we to believe in evolution and that Genesis is written poetically?  Join us as we study and discover the truths of creation.  We will dive into the book of Genesis and discuss God, creation, science and learn to believe and defend the biblical account of creation.
