As much as we love gathering with the whole church for corporate worship, there is something powerfully unique and transformative about a gathering in a living room, small classroom or around a dining room table that forces us to think differently than when we're in a big room for worship. We believe there isn't a more important ministry in the life of our church than our small groups. They are that important.
Our Answer For Why Small Groups:
- Connection - we all want personal connection. We are hard-wired to be in relationships with other people. With a digital world, we hear about connection, but digital connection isn't life-giving or personal. We all need a life giving group of people as we journey through life.
- Care - each church and person and their design is different but everyone wants to feel cared for. We can't be all things to all people, but we will value caring for those around us - not just at church, but in every area of life. We need to care for and be cared for.
- Commitment - without connecting to others and being cared for there will be no commitment. But we commit to finding relevant ways to connect and care for others so that we create a community of connected, caring, committed people. This is what Jesus did and it changed the world; so can we!
