Education Opportunities

Chapel in the Pines offers a variety
of programs that will foster growth of our faith in a welcoming atmosphere in
small groups.  If you have ideas about
forming a small group, please discuss them with Paul Isom, Education Committee chair
.  We are open to new groups and
also encourage your involvement in the groups now formed.  We hope you will find the right group for you.

Mid-Week Study Groups/Discussion Groups

  Thirst Quenchers

This group is for the young-at-heart (read “over 40”) and meets at 5:30 p.m. on the 2nd  and 4th Thursdays of each month.  If you are interested in the ways life and theology intersect, this is the gathering for you.  You will be pushed theologically, you will be challenged intellectually, and you will be free to share whatever thoughts and opinions
you have. The group meets at Rasa Malaysia in Southern Village.   For directions and articles to be discussed are posted on the website under “ministries”

      Love to read? Enjoy discussing books with others? This is the group for you!  Devoted Readers was organized about 8 years ago. We would like to share our love of books with other women in our church.  We currently meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. at the church.  We read mostly current fiction and some non-fiction we find of interest.

      Each month one of us leads the discussion on the chosen book.  If you are interested in joining Devoted Readers, please come on Wednesday, whether you have read either book or not. We would love to have you join us.   For more information, please contact Lynne Hoerter at  or calling 919-929-2612.
