Ruthie and Will Kauffman 

Our group meets on 2nd and 4th Sunday evenings at 6 pm, 760 Hershey Heights Rd, Hanover. No kids please! We share a meal together followed by a Bible discussion.  We are currently looking at some of the Psalms.  We also have time for people to share what God has been showing them through the week in their personal time with God and or other life experiences.  We end with a time of prayer for one another and other prayer requests. 

ProvYA - Young Adults

Providence young adults (or ProvYA) meets every Sunday from 6-8pm at the church to play games, share a meal, and have intentional discussion. We strive to foster meaningful relationship that glorify Jesus while reminding one another to not take life too seriously and have fun! Find your place with us on Sunday night!

Heather Trent

Women's Monday Night Bible Study

In my home from 6:30-8PM. This is a great Bible study for any Christian at any stage of their walk with Jesus. We dig right into the Word and study the Scriptures. We will be studying the Book of Esther together. Come to be encouraged in the Word and get connected with other women.

Duane and Tammy Kerstetter

We are targeting empty nesters and retirees around the 50’s to 60’s age range who want to have fun and be involved. We will initially meet on Thursday night at 6:30 pm, then determine an ongoing schedule. We want to grow in our knowledge and experience with God by talking through questions, confusions, and insights always in relation to scripture. We’ll also be community focused, looking for opportunities to serve and events to join in on. We want to have fun as a group or parts of a group to just “do things” together.

Ryan and Hollie Loucks

The homeschool small group is a group for homeschooling families to dig into God teachings and applying them to our schooling. We share experiences and do life together with the different members to encourage and help navigate through the calm waters and the rough waters alike. We just want to be a family and have a setting where we can be fully open and trusting with each other. 

Caleb Kuenzli (Young Men)

Young Adult Men’s Group: This group is for young men looking for community. We dive deep into the Lord and one another’s lives through weekly group time. We meet every Tuesday 7-9pm on the Hill. 

Bethany Kuenzli - BPM

BPM stands for “beats per minute” and is an intensive Small Group for Young Adult Ladies where we check our spiritual pulse and match it to the heart of the Father. If you’re looking to grow exponentially in your friendship with the Holy Spirit, this group is for you!

Lorraine Lattanzi

Women’s Thursday Night Bible Study

On October 6, 2022, we will be starting an 8-week semester from 7:00 - 9:00pm called, "Women of the Bible." Our goal is to apply biblical lessons to our own modern-day lives, as we study the stories of women from both the Old and New Testaments. We will learn how their struggles caused them to draw near to God, overcome rejection, insecurity, persevere through failures, and find lasting contentment with victory. We will begin with worship, soaking in the presence of the Lord. Bring Bible, journal & pen.

Victor and Emily Pagan

Paul says of the Thessalonian church, “Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well’ (1 Thes 2:8). Our desire and our delight is that we live a life fully connected to God and to God’s people. We want to make a space in our lives to connect with each other so we meet every Tuesday at the Pagan house (pronounced puh-gahn, not like biblical pagans ) located at 785 Germany Rd, East Berlin. We share a meal together and talk about our lives and what God is doing in our midst. Feel free to bring your kids and if it gets chaotic, I guess we will just lock them on the other side of the house while we make attempts to have adult conversations. 

Brain / LaGore Connect Group

We meet every other Sunday at 6 PM at the LaGore’s home in Glenville.  We are presently studying through the book of Genesis looking at all that this first book of the Bible has to teach us about Prophecy. Genesis is full of prophetic previews to coming attractions and we have been greatly challenged by the walk of faith of the people we meet in Genesis. We are two years into our study and are half way through the book.  We have our time together recorded as some prefer because of distance and other constraints to listen to the study remotely, but we also have people from four different churches that attend regularly. New people are always welcome.

Derek and Amanda Favreau

Our group was birthed in September of 2020, right on the heels of the Covid lockdowns, which prompted an increased hunger for community inside of Amanda and me.  We meet biweekly at our home in South Hanover on Friday nights to fellowship, worship, study and pray together.  We also enjoy desserts together because sweets are divine, especially chocolate! :)  The group was formed with a mix of folks from Providence church and the community at large (kids’ school, neighborhood etc.).  Amanda and I both have had the desire in our hearts for years to host a small group of believers to strengthen and support one another i.e. “do life” together. We are currently getting set to dive into the study of the Book of Romans next month. Our group is currently at full capacity, but we do have opening(s) from time-to-time. 

Jake and Julia Kent

We want to create an authentic community where people live life together, and can connect with each other, and find a place where they belong.

Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking- around life- and place it before God as an offering.
Romans 12:1-2 MSG

Men's Discipleship Group

In the Men's Discipleship Group, we dig into God's Word and discover what He tells us about how He sees us and how He wants us to see ourselves. We are identifying the things that stand between us and the men of God that we want to be. When we can do that, then we can take action against them and live full, victorious, manly lives. We meet every second and fourth Tuesday at 6:30pm at Providence in Stage 2. This is a standing invitation and you can join whenever you're able. We work hard to establish a place of trust and honesty where you will be able to be open and honest about the struggles of walking in the confidence of sonship. 

Dennis and Amanda Zekany

Hey Providence Family! We are the Zekany’s! We have been attending Providence for 10 years! We love Jesus and have a passion to do life with people! We love hosting people at our home and getting to know new people/families. Our group will be meeting the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month. We are looking so forward to gathering and doing life together!!!

Wendy Kadish / NAMI

Nami connection group meets from 6-7:30, the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at Providence Church. In this group we take time to care for each other and share our stories of recovery and hope with our own mental health. You are NOT alone. 

Mothers Arise

I am very excited to open my home for a mom’s group. We will meet weekly on Friday am from 9:30-11:30ish. We will enjoy some coffee, tea and a snack and dig into some different topics for moms from a biblical perspective. Child- care will be provided by a teen babysitter. Babies are welcome to stay with mom :). My goal is to connect with, love on and encourage each other as we face the different challenges moms have. We welcome 1st time pregnant moms through any stage mom. I can’t wait to see what God does!
