Small Group Ministry

Worship Big, Connect Small

Ferndale’s small groups meet weekly in homes. In these groups, you have the opportunity to get connected with others, build lasting relationships, and experience support systems that will help you to grow spiritually. The Sunday messages and text are the usual focus of study, along with other study materials. You can find the message and notes on this website under “Resources.”

If  you would like to become connected to a small group, please speak to Pastor Jim Welch at 705-745-8564 or by email at 

Pick up a copy of our Welcoming Ministries guide in the foyer or from one of the Connections Team members on Sunday morning.

Precept Bible Study

“Know God deeply.  Live differently”

The Precept Bible Study welcomes both men and women.  We meet each Monday at 9:15 am by Zoom.  

Precept uses an inductive approach to Bible study, which allows you to discover the truth of God’s word for yourself, rather than relying on someone else’s thoughts or interpretation.See for more detail on the Precept method…..
