Home Groups and 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.
Granite Creek will be hosting a Trauma Healing Group on Sunday mornings, February 25 - March 25, 9:30 - 10:45 am.
class is for those who have experienced trauma, abuse, addictions, and
other life-altering events. It is also for those who would like to be
trained to minister to people who have experienced trauma.
What is the Trauma Healing Group about?
- If God loves us, why do we suffer?
- How can the wounds of our heart be healed?
- What happens when someone is grieving?
- How to identify the wounds of the heart?
- What forgiveness and repentance are and what they are NOT.
"The Lord is near to those who are discouraged; he saves those who have lost all hope." - Psalm 34:18This five week class is limited to 16 people. Sign up at the Info Center or
