Our goal is to have a minimum of 25 small groups.
Do you have a heart for people? Do you enjoy a discussion with a group of your friends over a cup of coffee and a snack? You may be saying, “I have never hosted a Small Group before. Will there be printed material, training, and ongoing support?
YES…. the committee for this Fall’s Small Group Campaign will provide you with all that you will need to be a host, step by step, including leader’s material, resources and an orientation/training session.
As you prayerfully consider if God is calling you to serve as a host for this Fall’s Small Group Campaign, and you desire additional information, it would be my pleasure to visit with you.

What is Small Group…
Small groups are the primary means of making a large church seem small. The staff and leadership believes it is important for you to consider joining a small group. Sunday services are great for corporate worship and teaching, but life change happens in small groups. A small group becomes a strong circle of friends that can pray with you, laugh with you, cry with you, grow with you, and hold you accountable to live a life of full devotion to Jesus Christ through outreach and service to others.
Group size varies-usually 6 to 12 people. There can be groups for men, women, singles, married, etc. Groups are not necessarily based on what their members have in common but Whom they have in common—that is Jesus Himself. Groups may meet regularly weekly or bi-weekly, in homes, apartments, church, or in the workplace.
To Join a Small Group, please contact the church office for current Small Group Ministry in session. (320) 587-3031
