Men & Women Age 55+
1st Sundays after 2nd service

Barb Brown
Men & Women All Ages
1st & 3rd Monday Mornings 10am-12noon
Encounter Christian Church

In this eGroup, we will be focusing on healing the heart and building the new creation that we are supposed to be by renewing of the mind. We will be looking at those reactions that mirror our old habits rather than the new creation. More than simply identifying those negative emotions and ungodly reactions, we will learn how to dethrone the old nature through forgiveness and prayer. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we will learn how to put away our childish ways, so that we can be free to walk in a new way.

Reida Meunier
Men & Women All Ages
1st & 3rd Mondays 7:00-9:00pm
Encounter Christian Church

In this eGroup, we will be studying the Five Judgments, which include: Calvary where Jesus was judged, the Judgement seat of Christ at the Rapture, The Great Tribulation on the earth, the Judgement of the Nations in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and the Great White Throne. The main theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is Jesus, and no matter which judgement we study, we see that Jesus is the ultimate Judge. Throughout all time, Jesus is alive and is calling men to Himself. The judgments show us His heart, exemplify the greatness of our Creator, and ultimately show the miracle that He loves us so much. The word “judgment” might sound harsh, but in this study, we will learn more about God’s judgments are good, and His heart is for us to build a life here on earth as people who pursue righteousness, peace with God and each other, and ultimately prepare us for our eternal home with Jesus.


Women in the Word led by Stephanie York
Women Only
1st & 3rd Wednesdays 7:00-8:30pm
Encounter Christian Church

Women in the Word is a group of women who believe in doing life together, and endeavor to grow in their relationship with God and each other. We will be doing a study on the book called “Relentless” by John Bevere. Throughout life, it is inevitable that we face trials and tribulations. Sometimes those circumstances are so overbearing that we lose the stamina to continue. However, God has destined us for strength! In this study, we are going to discover how to overcome these obstacles as we lay hold of the promises and power we have in Christ, and victoriously enter spiritual rulership.

Men of Encounter led by Robert Greenlee
Men Only
1st Wednesdays 7:00-8:30pm
Maglio’s Restaurant on Hull Street

In Men of Encounter, you will find a group of men who are dedicated to growing and thriving in relationship with God and each other. Through fellowship and encouragement in the Word of God, it is our desire for men of all ages to reach their full potential in Christ.


Encounter Youth
Middle & High School Students
2nd & 4th Thursdays 7:00-8:30pm

Encounter Youth is a movement of middle and high school students who are passionate about Jesus. We believe that young people should have a place where they can experience God in a real way, be themselves, and have fun.


Encounter Young Adults led by Stephen and Jill Jefferson
High School Graduates-20s
2nd & 4th Fridays 7-9pm
5503 Chatmoss Road, Midlothian, VA 23112

Kevin & Jeanie Dascotte
Men & Women All Ages
1st & 3rd Fridays 7:00-9:00pm
17419 Simmons Branch Terrace, Chesterfield, VA 23838

In this eGroup, we will be studying about knowing Jesus from a Jewish perspective. We will dive into learning more about the 12 Tribes of Israel, as well as Jesus’ ministry in the Feast Days (including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Hannukah). This is going to be an exciting study that will teach us more about Jesus’ life and ministry in a way that many haven’t experienced before.
