At Poplar Springs, one of our core values is the idea of strengthening families. We understand that family begins at home, and that the church has a tremendous opportunity to bless and build up individual families. We also understand that the Bible teaches us church is more than a building on a piece of property, or an organization with calendared events. Church is people, it is a collection of individual families that come together to become the family of God. One of our core purposes is to strengthen individual families, and build up the family of God.


We also believe that one of the primary ways we can accomplish this goal is through Sunday School small groups. The life of the church family is centered in small groups. On a weekly basis we pray for, care for, and encourage one another in small group Bible studies. Many people begin their experience at a church by visiting the worship service, and this is a great place to start. However, the best way to get to know the people who make up the church is in a small group.
This directory is meant to be a user friendly guide for those who would like to take the next step of visiting a small group bible study.
Each of our groups has put together a brief description of themselves. We encourage you to read these descriptions and visit a couple of different groups that seem like a good fit for you. We have classes for all ages and all stages of life. Contact information for each class is included if you would like to connect with someone before you visit.


Contact information is also included for preschool, children, and youth groups so parents can make a contact before a visit if desired.
Every weekend we have friendly and knowledgeable people at the Welcome Center located just outside of the sanctuary. If you haven't made contact with someone in a group to meet you and guide you to the room, the folks at the Welcome Center will be happy to help you.
We are glad you are here!

This class for men is a collection of both newer and long-time members. These men meet together on Sunday to fellowship together and to study and discuss the Bible Study for that week. Class discussion of the study is encouraged, but is totally voluntary and no one is every "put on the spot" to speak. The class members are good men who care for each other and our church, and who are serious about the command to "forsake not the assembling of yourselves." Fellowship also extends outside the classroom in the form of social gatherings and community service projects that put our faith into action and show the love of Christ to those in need. New members are encouraged to join our class, and can be assured of receiving a warm welcome that will give a feeling that you are right at home!
