Connect Through Small Groups

WHAT ARE SMALL GROUPS?


Groups of 8-14 adults that exist to equip and mobilize the Faith family in making disciples.


We view small groups as a context for practical fellowship in which Christ is exalted and believers are edified; a place where sound doctrine meets strong relationships.

How do small groups fit into the life of the congregation? 

In thinking about discipleship, it’s helpful to think of a spectrum, with the whole congregation at one end, one on one relationships at the other, and small groups in the middle. 


Our church attempts to prioritize the gatherings of the whole congregation, because that’s where the primary teaching is done and where the entire body, with all its diverse parts, most reflects the gospel of Christ. 


On the other hand, we recognize that individual discipleship is an effective tool for spiritual growth. In between these two ends of the spectrum, we have small groups working to connect the benefits of our ministry to the whole congregation and the ministry going on between individuals.
