Click on the Browse Small Groups button above to view our growing list of Small Groups. When you find a group that interests you, just e-mail its leader and Get Connected!
Small Groups exist where 3 or more people are gathered with a common purpose and in Jesus' name. It can be topic based, activity based, a Bible study, sermon based, - really anything that creative leadership wants to pursue - as long as someone is following! Groups meet in homes, offices, at restaurants, in the church etc... wherever it's appropriate for that particular group to meet. It is in the small group setting that you will experience the personal interaction, input and encouragement that is necessary for your continued spiritual growth and maturity in Christ. If you are not a part of a Small Group, it can be easy to feel disconnected from the life of the church. We have terms in place (below) so that groups have start and end dates.
A great way to dig deeper after you've heard the sermon on a Sunday is to be a part of a GroGroup. A GroGroup is a sermon based small group whose goal is to develop spiritual growth, and significant relationships centered around the study of God’s word, based on that week’s sermon. The GroGroup will have an agreed upon group covenant as their guide to scheduling and have more of an on-going schedule with planned breaks. A new GroGroup could pop up at any time so keep browsing the list to check for additions and updates.
TERMS Groups are usually active for a term at a time, taking breaks between terms. New GroGroups can start up anytime. At the beginning of a term is when new groups other than GroGroup tend to start. But there are new groups starting all the time so keep checking our list for new groups... Winter/Spring Term: Feb - April (May break) Summer Term: June/July (Aug break) Fall Term: Sept.- Nov. (Dec/Jan break)
