Small Groups

At Central we want to provide the questions that will be looked at in group before you head to your group. Each week this is where you will find the questions and some prayer requests.
If you are not yet in a group and are interested in joining a group, please send us an email to

Welcome back to Group.  At Central we believe that small group is an essential part of our walk as we grow together in community.  If you have been a part of group please be reminded of our “empty chair” philosophy of growth, and if you are not yet involved know that the empty chair is for you!

Elijah:  Ordinary Man, Extraordinary God

Pastor Ben Phillips

Text for the week: 1 Kings 19

Question 1)  Despite seeing miraculous workings of God, when Elijah is threatened by Jezebel he runs.  What is the reason for this?

Question 2)  How can we, especially because we are fallen people, act similarly to Elijah?

Question 3)  How did God correct Elijah?  Why do you think he did not strongly rebuke him?  How did God correct him?

Question 4)  Why do you think Elijah did not follow through with all three commands at the end of chapter 19 and instead only anointed his successor and not the two kings?


Small groups meet in homes from around the church each week. They allow people to connect, develop friendships, and grow towards being passionate followers of Jesus Christ.
