The Small Group Ministry at Pennyrile offers a unique opportunity to get to know other members of the Pennyrile family on a deeper level. If you are intersted in joining a small group or would like more information contact Sean Niestrath.
Current Small Groups:
Building Group- a positive, encouraging, and productive service which will be offered every Sunday evening at the Pennyrile building, beginning at 6:00.
Prayer Group/Book Study-meeting time will be 1pm Sunday afternoon at the building.
Study Group- Studying John's account of the gospel and other subjects. Meet in each other's homes at lunch on Sundays.
Family Group-the majority of members are families with school age children or younger, but anyone is welcome! We meet each Sunday at 5pm either at the building or in our homes.
Encouragement Group-visit 2 area care facilities on 1st and 3rd Sundays. Meet with the building group on 2nd Sundays and meet in the church library on 4th Sundays to address bday/anniv cards and encouragement notes.
With so many stressors in our fast paced culture, a supportive, encouraging church family is a wonderful resource. Another resource for dealing with depression, anxiety, and other challenges is Pennyrile Christian Counseling (located in the east end of the building). Most insurance is accepted and a sliding fee scale is available. Elizabeth Webb, licensed marriage and family therapist, is a member at Pennyrile and provides professional therapy from a Christian perspective.

Every July, a large number of the Pennyrile family attends a week at WKYC outside of Marion, KY. This week is filled with lots of fun, fellowship, and future memories. If you would like more information about attending WKYC contact Ronny Stubblefield.
The website for Western Kentucky Youth Camp is :
We plant this small plot behind the church every year. Most of the harvest is donated to the local food bank.
Every year we have our epic yard sale during spring break. This sale helps fund our Honduras Missions and also our Youth Missions. We've been blessed year after year with a great turnout.
Once or twice a year around the Christmas holidays we collect food for 20-25 families in our community. This is always a rewarding activity from donating, sorting, packing, and delivering!
