Why small groups?
The Christian life is meant to be lived in deeply-rooted community—a level of community and relationship that simply cannot be achieved during the corporate gathering alone. We believe that an essential part of your personal spiritual growth and edification is to live the Christian life in close relationship with other believers.
The Bible is filled with “one-another” statements: love one another (John 13:34), be devoted to one another (Romans 12:10), live in harmony with one another (Romans 12:16), build up one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11), admonish one another (Colossians 3:16), care for one another (1 Corinthians 12:25), serve one another (Galatians 5:13), bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), forgive one another (Ephesians 4:2, 32)…
The only way you can fulfill these 100+ commands is to actually be part of one another’s lives! And the best way we see to foster these types of relationships is small groups, where we can live out our faith together.
Our small group values
Centrality of Truth: Our groups will be grounded in the Bible.
Relational Vulnerability: Our groups will move beyond superficial conversation and be truly open and vulnerable with one another.
Mutual Accountability: Our groups will help one another grow and stay disciplined in living an obedient, God-honoring life.
Service to Others: Our groups will look beyond ourselves. What we learn cannot stop with us; we must extend it in love and service to others.
Joining a Small Group
Most of our small groups meet weekly in homes on Sunday or Monday evening, although we do have some groups who meet less frequently or in the church building. Some groups welcome kids and others encourage parents to find childcare. We try to keep our groups in the 8–12 person range, although there is one group that meets weekly on Sunday mornings in the church building at 9:15am that is larger.
A list of current groups can be found online here. You will be able to see when the group meets and read a little about the group’s demographics. Then you can request to join the group right from that page.
