Spotlighting each small group lets you peek inside before stepping in — a preview of sorts. Not seeing the details on the one that interests you? More spotlights will be added over time. But, no need to wait for a spotlight, email for more info.

While the details of each small group change frequently, we do our best to give you a flavor of the group. For the most current information and answers, email

Sunday Small Group: Sundays 8:45 a.m.

At 8:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings at Morning Star, the worship team warms voices and instruments for the service, the prayer team lifts prayers for the church and its members, and a small group tucks itself into a classroom to connect with God and one another. 

This small group enjoys the consistency of this early morning time before the week’s schedule has them running. With attenders in their twenties through to their sixties, Don Rice, the group leader, welcomes men and women of all ages to pop in and stay awhile. 

In Don’s words, “Our burden is light and our homework is easy.” Conversation opens the group, followed by prayer and a dive into a chapter in the Bible. Occasionally, the group plans dinners and games, but there is no pressure to attend if life does not allow for it. 

Perfectly timed, the group ends before the 10:15 a.m. service — just in time to join the worship team, the prayer warriors and the rest of the Morning Star community in worship. 

If you want to take a first step into small groups, Don’s group is a perfect fit. If you want to get connected at Morning Star, still a perfect fit!
