Small Groups

We invite you to “join” RiverStone by joining a small group in your area! Our vision is to connect each member of RiverStone into a group in which they can grow in community with one another but also to touch the community around them. Please review the following groups to find a good fit and feel free to contact the leaders at any time. Email Sam Buhler, our Small Groups Pastor at if you have any questions.

Bob and Donna Dunning

This inter-generational group meets on Tuesdays at 7 PM.
The book of Ephesians is the constitution of our faith, the great summary description of all that is precious and esteemed in Christian doctrine and Christian living. It asserts the authority of the church over every other force, and its living revelation drips with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Enrich your biblical understanding of the book of Ephesians, experience God’s love for you, and share his heart with others.
No childcare provided. For more information: 770-789-1238 or email Info is also available at
We meet at Mike Leonard’s home at 3130 Lily Way, Kennesaw, 30144

Shane and Kim Long

God’s heart towards you is Good! Part of His goodness is that He has designed us to be in right relationship with Him and with one another. Our home group is for folks that want to journey through this crazy, messy and amazing adventure together. We will meet Friday nights at 7 PM and also do “stuff” (camping, leaf looking, dinners, hikes etc.) outside of our scheduled meetings from time to time. 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.

We are a men-only small group ages 21 and older who meet MOST (but not all) Saturdays at Daily Grind Coffee House at 3960 Mary Eliza Trace NW (across the street from Due West Elementary School) in West Cobb from 7 AM – 8:30 AM. We discuss the challenges that we face in our fallen world battles. Common topics are scripture, spiritual warfare, Christian leadership at home, workplace and circles of influence, and prayer. We stand shoulder-to-shoulder as brother warriors in accountability, prayer, support, and acceptance. Join us whenever you can. No homework. No pressure. Come if you can make it. We’re glad to welcome you. Every Friday, we confirm who can attend and if we will meet, through text messaging. If you’d like to get on our list, contact Billy Gay at 678.386.8201 or

Mark and Susan Norris

Hey, everyone, we are Mark and Susan Norris. We moved here from North Carolina 25 years ago with our two toddlers. Now they’re adults, pursuing their dreams and living life on their own. We have been a part of RiverStone Church since the very first service of Wesleyan Fellowship (the original name of our church). Just as the church has changed through the years, so have we, and now we find ourselves as empty nesters looking to share some of what we have learned about life, marriage, and all that goes with it. Our small group is for anyone who is in a serious relationship pursuing marriage, engaged, or married for less than 10 years. If you fall in that group, we would love to have you. We will host starting on June 15th on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM in our home, 451 Woodvalley Drive SW, Marietta, GA 30064. Childcare will not be provided. If you have questions, give us a call, 678-776-6610 (Mark) or 404-388-0483 (Susan).
