Small Groups

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NLT)

What is a Small Group?

A Small Group is made up of people who share similar interests, are in the same stage of life, or want to learn from each other. People gather for all sorts of reasons whether it is playing a sport, spending time at the park, having lunch during the work day, or studying the Bible together. The point is not so much what you meet about, but that you are regularly meeting with people and living in community as God designed you to do.

Why Small Groups?

Small Groups have one, simple purpose to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in community with others and only then can we experience the full life He intends for us. Meaningful relationships can be hard to find, and that is why small groups exist to make life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. It is through life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives. Even when you might not realize you need it, your small group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.
