Groups make disciples by gathering regularly to share truth, show love, and grow together in Christ.
The Bible never commands churches to have a small groups ministry. What it does command, however, is for Christians to love, care for, pray for, support, encourage, exhort, teach, and admonish one another. In a smaller church, being able to follow these commands can happen a bit more organically. But in a larger church we need to be more intentional about cultivating environments where we can carry out these commands.
Small groups are a vehicle for us to be able to do what the New Testament says the church should be doing. Groups commit to gather regularly to share truth, show love, and grow in Christ together. They offer an environment for the type of intentional relationships we need to minister the Word of God to one another. We value groups because we believe community is the context for discipleship.
Mixed groups, often (but not always) made up of couples and families, meeting 2-4 times a month for study, encouragement, fellowship, and prayer. To receive more information about joining a Growth Group, please fill out the Growth Group Interest form at the link below.
These small groups are places where men can share life together and encourage each other toward spiritual growth through mutually encouraging relationships and the study of God’s Word.
We believe one of the best places to grow spiritually and to develop meaningful relationships with other women is in a women’s study group. We offer a number of Bible studies for women, varying in length, covering a wide array of topics that meet mornings or evenings throughout the year.
Help care for those dealing with particular areas of suffering in their lives, such as divorce, grief, and chronic pain. To see what groups are currently offered, visit our Support Groups page at the link below.
GroupConnect is a connection event that we host twice a year. At GroupConnect, we’ll do our best to help you find a group that is the right fit for you. You’ll have the opportunity to meet group leaders or other members of groups. Then you can sign up for a group that fits best for you. Watch the Current for more information about upcoming GroupConnect events (they're usually in January and August). No registration is required.
Our next GroupConnect will be held on Sunday, August 25, 2019 immediately after both services.
