The purpose of Jacksonville Presbyterian Church is to connect people to Jesus Christ and one another in authentic community that will promote life-transformation through relationships, study of God’s Word, prayer and outreach opportunities that daily influence the world for Christ. (Romans 12:2, Matthew 22:37-39)
These groups exist to help people grow to full maturity in their relationship with God and to establish a deeper relationship with others in the group (Love God and Love people) They also have the desire to reach out to those currently outside the church to engage and share God’s love for them and bridge the gap between the church and the community. Some of these groups meet at the church building while others are hosted in members’ homes.
Each class appeals to a different constituency, but all are distinguished by a caring spirit that emphasizes God’s Word. Some of the classes offer a verse by verse study of scripture, while others offer topical studies. However, all are designed to help the participants grow in their walk with our Lord.
Adult Sunday School
Our classes are designed for all ages and stages. These classes take place between our 2 worship services and offer different topics including Parenting, Leadership, Ministry and Missionary updates and studies of scripture. We encourage questions and discussion leading to learning and growing as followers of Christ.
Although all of our small groups include and rely on prayer, we have a number of groups devoted to prayer. These meet throughout the week at various times and locations. Some focus on specific needs such as the church, mothers and children or prayer requests from the church family. Other groups meet and respond to how God Leads. We also have 4 Prayer Chains available 24 hours a day for immediate
