Community Groups

We have 2 separate community groups at St. Nicholas Church, a North Group and a South Group.  The North Group is mostly made up of church members who live in the Bentonville/Rogers/Bella Vista area.  The South Group mostly consists of those who live in the  Fayetteville/Springdale/Farmington area.

These meetings are great, informal settings for our parish members, catechumens, and inquirers to Orthodoxy.  We are currently going through  “A Journey to Fullness”  together in both groups.

“A Journey to Fullness” is a program designed for those who want to learn more about the Orthodox Faith. This 16-part series includes a 20-minute video and workbook section for each part. Our community groups cover a part of this series complete with discussion and fellowship in each meeting on a monthly basis. It is not necessary to start at the beginning of the series to benefit from it, you can jump in anytime, so please join us!  You can attend either group’s meetings or you can attend both if you would like to!
