What is Small Group Ministry?
Small Group Ministry is where 8-10 people meet in a committed group with the intention of establishing deeper connections with each other and with God. The groups meet once a month from October to June and are led by trained lay members of the congregation. The group meetings run 1.5 hours and include a check-in, a short topic reading, discussion of the topic, and closing prayer.
Why should I join a group?
- Allows for deeper conversations that we can’t always have in team meetings or during coffee hour.
- Provides a relaxing and safe place to explore and ask questions about issues of faith and life.
- Facilitates the building of friendships and creates an atmosphere of mutual encouragement, support, and prayer.
- Participants feel a greater connection to one another and to God and are FIVE TIMES less likely to drift away from the church.
When do groups meet?
1st Tuesday of the month: 1:30-3:00 pm
Sunday: 11:30am-1:00 pm
