Small Groups

Our small groups are designed to provide a place for you to grow deeper with God and grow together with others.  A small group is a group of 6-15 people who meet together regularly to encourage each other to grow in their relationship with God and together join in God’s mission for the world.

 
There are a variety of groups offered and it is our hope that you can find a group that will be a good fit for you!  Some groups are open year round for members to join, but generally each September and January we will be trying to start new groups.
 
 If you have interest in finding a small group, contact Pastor Jeff at the church office for more information.
 
Small Group Priorities
 
The central priorities for our small groups are found in Acts 2:42-47—
 
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had needEvery day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
 

  • Devotion to the Word of God and Prayer (The Bible will be a central part of our small group meetings.  We will commit to be faithful in prayer.)
  • Sharing life together (Small groups will provide an environment of support and encouragement as well as opportunities to share the struggles and victories of our lives.) 
  • Worship (We will be aware of God’s presence and acknowledge His work)
  • Ministry (We will strive to be good stewards of our time, talent and treasure and look for opportunities to be involved in our community.) 
  • Witness (We will seek to communicate, through word and action,  what God is doing in our lives)

 
Join a group, it will change your life!
