Small Groups

We invite you to “join” RiverStone by joining a small group in your area!

STARTING IN AUGUST – THE PROCESS of PROPHECY: THE BEAUTIFUL STEPS OF MOVING IN PROPHECY by GRAHAM COOKE
The nature of God is loving, calm, peaceful, kind and beautiful. These are all vital elements of our own identity in the beauty of God. They are also keys to how we speak and move in the prophetic gift. The understanding of how God sees, thinks and speaks to people is a powerful part of this book. It is the process of how we learn to hear His voice and speak His heart that will empower people to rise up in the Spirit and live differently. In this book, you will learn some of the secrets in developing your own rhythm of sensitivity to the Lord. you will learn to see from the heart as you restore people’s dignity and self-respect. It is the process of becoming like God that makes us rich, not the outcome.
No childcare provided. For more information: 770.789.1238 or email BobDunning@mac.com. Info is also available at https://rfdministries.com/Group
We meet at Mike and Diane Leonard’s home at 3130 Lily Way, Kennesaw, 30144.


Shane and Kim Long

Keeping Your Love On (KYLO) reveals the higher, Jesus-focused standard defined by mature love—love that stays ‘on’ no matter what. Our home group will meet Friday nights beginning in early March to dive deep into what KYLO means – and hopefully along the way our marriages, family, social and work relationships will be all the stronger for it. The study guide will cost $12 per person. We’ll meet at 2601 Lone Oak Trail in Kennesaw. Childcare will not be provided and the group is anticipated to be an eclectic mix of folks in various stages of life.

Billy Gay

We are a men’s small group ages 21 and older who meet MOST Saturdays from 7 AM – 8:30 AM at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop Conference Room (3960 Mary Eliza Trace). Currently, we meet and are reading aloud (no homework for this group – just show up!) John Eldredge’s book, “Waking the Dead”.  We are informally and spontaneously discussing the thought-provoking content of this book. Our objective as a group is to achieve the proverbial setting of “iron sharpening iron”. This is a small group where men are able to discuss the challenges that we, as men, face in the world, daily. Seeking truth and God’s purpose in our lives in a world of distortion, we share, question, vent sometimes, agree or even disagree, but respectfully. We stand shoulder-to-shoulder as brother warriors and occasionally offer accountability feedback, but always acceptance. Join us whenever you can. We’re glad to welcome you. Contact Billy Gay at 678.386.8201 or wjgay85@gmail.com.
