“For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20
Our Small Group ministries are all about relationships…with people and with Jesus Christ. Our groups give people connection points so they don’t feel so alone and isolated in this broken world in which we live. Creating a family environment where ministry is taken to a relational level, Small Groups provide opportunities for personal growth and spiritual maturity with trusted friends to help us along, and focuses on relationships, drawing people into greater spiritual intimacy with one another and with God, as they seek to know Him, love Him, and serve Him.
We have three distinct types of small groups for which people can get involved:
- Connections Groups: Entry level, socially-based groups that meet for a 7-9 week duration utilizing an all-church sponsored curriculum; these groups are designed to connect in a basic, non-threatening way and can move into Life Groups or Transformational Groups
- Life Groups: These groups share life together on a deeper level, building relationships, and sharing a longer-term commitment with no time limits
- Transformational/Accountability Groups: Our most advanced Small Group type, these groups gather together to deal with issues on a personal level; these are groups that have typically been meeting together for many years, and become closed once formed; Band of Brothers and Daughters of Grace are examples of these groups.
