Small Group Ministry
Small groups are gatherings of 6-12 people for the purpose of discipleship, mutual encouragement, outreach, service, or a combination of these things. The goal of each group is to allow God’s Word to transform us: both as a community and as individuals who learn to live out what it means to love God and love others.
While each individual is directly accountable to God and responsible to develop a personal relationship with Him, believers are also adopted into a family–the church. Small groups represent one of three primary areas of the Christian’s life in a local church:
Celebration – worship consistently with the entire body as a large group
Service – using your personal gifts, talents, and abilities in a ministry area with excellence and devotion
Maturity – meeting regularly with other believers who will encourage, challenge, and hold each other accountable
When: Various times throughout the week
Where: The small groups meet in individual homes
This is a weekly informal prayer and praise ministry that is open to everyone in the church from the very young to the oldest including whole family units. During this time we bathe our church, its members, friends, and missionaries in prayer. We review previous prayer requests to see how God has answered. “Prayer Partners,” which appears in our bulletin each week, has its origins from this prayer group.
When: Wednesday evenings 7:00 – 8:30 pm
