Small Groups

Small Groups

The concept of small groups is as old as Moses leading the Israelites, Jesus and His disciples, and the gatherings of the early church. Small groups were central to John Wesley’s design of the Methodist movement and particularly the great spiritual awakening first in England and then in America. Small groups are important to our church because they are an important foundation to facilitate spiritual growth.                      They provide:

  • an opportunity to pursue God in the company of friends
  • a journey of faith with a handful of others who will accept you for who you are
  • relationships that fuel and ignite life change through fellowship, Bible study, relevant discussion, and life sharing
