Study Groups

A number of small groups meet at Derry Church or in members’ homes for Bible study, discussion, prayer, and fellowship.  New participants are welcome at any time. JIF groups provide a wonderful opportunity to meet people, ask tough questions about your faith, reach personal faith goals, pray with and for others, learn more about the Bible and other relevant literature, and be challenged to grow and learn. Groups meet weekly unless otherwise noted. Contact the church office for more information about any of the groups listed below, or to start a new group.
