Billy Gay

We are a men’s small group ages 21 and older who meet MOST Saturdays from 0700-0830 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

Tim and Catherine Nalley                                                                                      Our group is for anyone who has the desire to improve their relationships with others as they grow in their personal relationship with the Lord. What other issue in our life brings us greater joy or deeper despair than relationships?  Using what Jesus teaches believers as our foundation along with other Biblically based resources, we will become better equipped to love  well as we look at what hinders and helps us in relationships; whether it be with parents, spouses, siblings, co-workers or neighbors. It is our desire to offer a safe and supportive place to experience spiritual growth and transformational change in our relationship with the Lord and with others.   We will meet every other Monday night at 1282 Banas Court.   For more information call 770-425-5323.

Joel and Sarah Koeppen

This group is for married couples. We meet the third Saturday of the month at 7 pm. Marriage is an opportunity to become Christlike as we walk out the life that God has intended within our homes. We want to help you in this walk, because it’s definitely a challenge at times! From marriage comes family. So much of what we want people to understand is the impact that marriage has on the family. Healthy marriages create healthy families and healthy families change the world around us. We want each person to truly believe that he/she can be the person God has called them to be as well as the husband or wife God has called them to be. Marriage is so valuable in the kingdom of God and we want to come alongside you as you walk this road.            We meet at: 77 Windsor Way Dallas Ga 30132            Contact us at 720-936-5922,, or
