Small Groups
WHAT ARE SMALL GROUPS?
Following Jesus is something we do as community and through community. Although this pushes against the grain of our rugged individualism, following Jesus means being a part of God's new community, the church. Jesus said, "By this, all people will know that you are my disciples, if you love another."

Small Groups, then, are simply groups of around 10-25 people who meet together to study God's Word, love each other, and pray for each other. Some small groups meet at our church facility, and some groups meet in homes. Some focus primarily on studying a specific book of the Bible, and others focus on reaching unchurched people.

Wherever you are with your walk with the Lord, find your group. Live in community. Seek the life of Jesus in the community of Jesus.

If you want to get plugged in, come to a group on the right or email Pastor Richard, who would love to help you get plugged in.

Prayer Groups

Although all of our small groups include and rely on prayer, we have a number of groups devoted to prayer. These meet throughout the week at various times and locations. Some focus on specific needs such as the church, mothers and children or prayer requests from the church family. Other groups meet and respond to how God Leads. We also have 4 Prayer Chains available 24 hours a day for immediate
confidential prayer.
