We believe in Small Groups. Getting connected at theChurch means participating in a small group or a LifeTalk class.
We believe that our church must become larger and smaller at the same time.
“You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.” Acts 20:20
Small groups are usually made up of 8-12 people and gather together a few times a month for food, fellowship, fun, encouragement, Bible study and prayer. These groups are based around various interests, activities, or life stages, and allow you to develop meaningful relationships that will enrich your life and strengthen your faith.If you aren’t connected in a Small Group, we hope you will consider it a next step for you in your journey of faith.
Small Groups provide three things:
1. A place to Connect.
“…yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him.” 1 Corinthians 9:22
2. A place to Care.
“We know what real love is because Christ gave up His life for us. And so we also ought to give up our lives for our Christian brothers and sisters.” 1 John 3:16
3. A place to Grow.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
“He cared for them with a true heart and lead them with skillful hands.” Psalm 78:72
Small groups are held in homes, at theChurch, businesses, restaurants, and coffee shops throughout the area. Our groups are as varied as we are; group leaders use their gifts and passions to create a group that allows others to join with them in serving God. Bible Study groups, groups based on subject, age, interest, or location – there is a group that is just right for you. Talk It Over notes, a recap of the weekend message that can be used for a personal devotion or in a small group setting are available each week. Small Groups run on two semesters – September-December and January-May. A list of Small Group is available at Resources and online.
