Groups and Teaching

We believe small groups of people are the catalyst for positive transformation in the world - like Jesus and his disciples. We offer small groups, topics classes, and teaching series to help people connect to God and to neighbor. 

We host groups on our church campus, at local businesses, and in local residences. We invite you to find a group below that interests you and contact the leader to take the next step.

Genesis: A Closer Look

This  class will take a close look at the book of Genesis spending time on creation, God's promise, and the stories of the women of Genesis. We'll present different theological views and the merits of each when it comes to the biblical world of Genesis. Each class will come with a handout that includes lesson content, key theological and Hebrew words, and suggest reading for further study. 


Sermon Series: Everyday Christian

Using Dialog Series: Everyday Christian as a companion, our pastoral team will share teaching on how to practice your faith everyday.  

Join us for this 7 week series starting the first week of October.

We believe prayer is important so we reserve space every week to seek God's will for our lives. Join us on Wednesdays each week for meaningful prayer.

Let Compassion Become a Part of Your Story

Our missions series on the theme "Let Compassion Become a Part of your Story" will give you the chance to make a difference in someone's life. Nazarene Missions International (NMI) is a ministry of the Church of the Nazarene. GFCN supports NMI through classes like this, fundraising opportunities, and compassionate ministry projects. Join us on Wednesday September 4 to get involved.


Men's Group

Meaningful relationships can be hard to come by and positive male role models can be scarce, but Gainesville Nazarene is here to help men make authentic connections and develop mentor relationships. The next men's event is January 24-26 in south Georgia.
