Home Groups and Small Groups
There is a desperate cry for love, a need to belong and a search for meaningful relationships that is predominate in our disheartened society. Thus, the need for Small Groups!
In Small Groups, we grow together, minister and serve together, play together, pray together, fail together, cry and laugh together and become victorious together.
It’s a place to develop meaningful relationships, be in an environment of discipling and nurturing, have a testing ground to develop leadership skills, and a place to hold each other accountable to God, as we provide a safe place for people to know God in a deeper way and be known by others in the group.
Small Groups offer a safe place to connect with other believers in fellowship. Our purpose is simple - to grow in our understanding of God and our role in His plan for our life. It is our firm belief that life change happens best in community. We believe that when people gather in groups with a shared mission to pursue God, to love one another, and to serve others- God tends to show up and do amazing things!
There are many types of groups, and room for more ideas. There are Bible Study Groups, Men’s Groups, Women’s Groups, Interest Groups, Marriage Groups and Events, and topical studies.
