God never intended us to be lone rangers. We were made to need one another and His desire is for us to fellowship in a community of believers… a smaller group within the bigger church. His Word tells us in Hebrews 10:24-25: "Think of ways to encourage one another to outbursts of love and good deeds. And let us not neglect our meeting together..."
Celebrate the joys of life and serve one another during the difficult times. Many Small Group members will attest that joining a Small Group was one of the most significant steps they took in their walk with the Lord.

This women’s bible study class meets weekly at DRCC during the school year, offering both morning and evening sessions. Sister 2 Sister is a great way to get to know women of all ages, experience mentorship and build friendships, while pouring over thoughtfully chosen, biblically-based curriculum. Though considered a class, a portion of our time together includes small group discussion.
