Small Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues, as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through men's/women's groups, home gatherings, and other personal settings.
NOTE- Due to the unprecedented health emergency we face with the coronavirus, small groups will not meet face to face until further notice. For now, here are a few ways we can be disciples for Jesus--
- Several of these small groups will continue to meet and share via a virtual format- thanks to online opportunities. Feel free to contact the small group leader to see if your group will be able meet through an online format. This information will be updated to let each of you know when face to face meetings will resume.
- One way each of us is able to stay connected is through prayer. We can pray for one another, pray for health and protection, and pray for God to show us ways to reach out to others.
- Make phone calls to check-in with others in your small group or reach out to others by phone as support for one another.
- Connect with family and friends, showing them the Love of Jesus in special ways.

A small group is a group of three or more people who gather each week in a home, workplace, or online. In a group you’ll hang out, study the Word, and pray together.
Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Ready to dive in?
