SMALL GROUPS SIMPLY DEFINED


CIRCLES ARE BETTER THAN ROWS


This is our way of talking about our commitment to "community" and the importance of small group involvement for the personal, relational, and spiritual growth of each of our members, regular attenders, and overall curious friends in the community.  Our main focus area for connection and community is in our Community Groups (more info above) but we also offer some select Bible Study and Discipleship-focused groups throughout the year as well.


We are called and loved personally, but brought into and made members of the family/people of God, the church. There is no such thing as a “Lone Ranger Christian”. Every New Testament letter is written to, or about, the church as a community and group. We are to imitate our God who is the ultimate unity-in-diversity - trinity: three persons; one God - by participating in, and contributing to, the life of others with joy (cf. Acts 2:42-47).


We don't ever expect anyone to be at, or committed to, everything we do as a church. But we do hope and highly encourage everyone to be plugged in and committed to something! Take a look at our current options and consider which one works best for your current schedule.
