WHY SMALL GROUPS EXIST
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’s why small groups exist – to make life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
WHAT A SMALL GROUP IS
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 what you meet about, it’s that you are regularly meeting with people and living in community as God designed you to do.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN A SMALL GROUP
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.
WHEN & WHERE
Groups meet throughout the year in three semesters. This semester begins September 21st and ends November 18th. New groups start each semester making it easy for you to get involved at any time.
