Small Groups

Small groups exist as a way for people to engage in biblical community and biblical learning that helps them become more like Jesus in every area of their lives.

  • LEARN Groups

    LEARN Groups meet on Sunday mornings 9:30. 

    LEARNing the Faith is vital. Christianity is so much more than knowing a set of facts. Christian faith is a faith which transforms our lives. Following Jesus is never less than knowing, understanding, and believing he is the God in the flesh, come to die in the pace of sinners, and resting in his promise to save his people. That knowledge, though, changes our affections, desires, and lives. These groups are intended to ground believers in the "faith once for all delivered to the saints." To put it another way, on Sunday mornings we LEARN the faith in these groups. LEARN Groups follow a quarterly schedule and are open to anyone at anytime.

    Please note: due to the change in scheduling of all church activities, meetings, etc., as we remain "safer at home," adjustments will be made as necessary.

    LEARN Groups - April 5 - May 31, 2020

    "Answers to Tough Questions - Defending What You Believe" (6 sessions) - (co-ed; all ages; room 120)

    It can be hard to live out our faith in the midst of a culture of confusion but every follower of Christ should consider carefully why they believe what they believe.  In this study, we will learn how our faith challenges us to go to God's Word instead of Google for answers.  Come take this six-week journey and discover how to defend your faith and point to The Answer - Jesus Christ.

    "Overcome - Living Beyond Your Circumstances" (6 sessions) - (co-ed; all ages; room 122)

    Sometimes the circumstances of life can feel overwhelming.  Because you can't always change them, you just learn to survive under them.  Thankfully, that is not the life Christ calls you to live.  In this Bible study, Alex Humaya explains this concept of overcoming through the lens of the life of Joseph.  By looking closely at Joseph's life, you'll find motivation and practical help to live beyond your circumstances.  Regardless of what's happening in your life, you can be certain that God is at work.  Come join us for this 6-session study. God had plans for Joseph.  He also has plans for you.

    Evangelism - "Share Jesus Without Fear" (4 sessions) (co-ed; all ages; room 118): This course is designed for persons who want to, by the grace of God, learn how to better tell others about the Savior who came to rescue sinners from the wrath of God.  For most of us, if we are honest, evangelism is intimidating.  Come join us as we explore Scripture and trust God to give us abundant grace to be faithful in telling others about His Son.

    "The Sermon on the Mount - a Line-by-Line Inductive Study" (co-ed; all ages; meeting in the Large Conference Room): In this study we will continue to explore line-by-line Jesus' best known sermon. (continued from winter session)

    Men's Study - "Disciplines of a Godly Man" (men only; all ages; room 121) This is a men's only study designed to help men understand who God created them to be, and how He equips us to that end." (continued from winter session)

    Bible Overview - "New Testament pt. 2" (co-ed; all ages; room 119): As we explore the New Testament, we will begin to understand the big picture of each book.  This study will be more like a flight across the country than a family cross-country road trip.  We will avoid getting caught up in the minor details, but we we'll see the scenery change as we fly over different books. (continued from winter session)

    Guided Studies - Explore the Bible (co-ed; all ages; rooms 101, 117, & Choir room)

    "Romans" - Paul's letter to the Romans is the very heart of the gospel and is worthy of our careful study.  The gospel - "the power of God for salvation (Rom. 1:16) - is the theme of Romans.  This gospel not only saves us from the penalty of sin but also breaks the power of sin over us. Come join us for the study of this New Testament book.  The more you study Romans, the more precious the gospel will become to you. (March 1 - May 31)

  • LIVE Groups

    LIVE Groups meet in various homes and locations throughout our community on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evening of each month.  

    LIVE Groups are where the rubber meets the road. This is where we LIVE the faith in our community with our brothers and sisters. Every other week we gather together across our community to share a meal or lite snacks, laugh and talk, pray with and for one another, and apply the Bible to our lives. This is where head meets heart and LEARNing meets LIVE-ing.

  • LEAD Groups

    The Faith we LEARN, and LIVE is one which compels us to LEAD others in the Faith. LEAD groups are the way we seek to create a culture of disciple-making at Boone Trail Baptist Church. These groups are gender specific and meet weekly to encourage, hold accountable, pray for each other, memorize scripture and apply the Bible to each others lives in a more personal setting. These groups are closed by design. Every so often new LEAD Groups will form.

  • Senior Adults

    Our Senior Adult Ministry at Boone Trail is one with various opportunities for involvement. We have several different options for Small Groups on Sunday mornings as well as opportunities to be plugged into our Home Group ministry. There is valuable wisdom to be gleaned from those who have experienced so much in life and their walk with Christ. We also have breakfast and Bible Study on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 throughout most of the year. For those who enjoy trips, we typically venture out once a month from April-December to various destinations such as Dollywood, The Cove, Barter Theater and other places within a days drive. For more information about how to get involved with our Senior Adult Ministry opportunities, contact the church office.

  • Women's Ministry

    Boone Trail has a thriving women's ministry known as the 5L's, (Ladies Laughing, Loving, Learning and Listening). On the first Tuesday night of each month at 6:30, our ladies gather together for a time of fellowship and Bible Study. There is always something good for supper followed by a time of studying God's Word with other women, ranging in age from college to senior adults. There are opportunities to hear from various teachers as well as musical guests from time to time. The Women's Ministry is also involved in our community through helping out various schools and others in need.
