Why We Believe Small Groups Are Important
Community can serve as a means of transformation, both for individuals and for groups. Jesus calls us into deep relationship with one another, and we are called into relationship with God. We believe that community is so essential to the Christian life that Christianity is actually impossible outside of a life in community.
With this in mind, small groups are for our church a means of establishing this communion with God and others, for the purpose of more fully becoming the church we are called to be. In other words, small groups become a means of establishing the community to which we are called as Christians.
Consider joining a Small Group!
Sign-ups will open up for Tri-1 in early September and runs through the beginning of Advent.Tri-2 begins mid-January and runs through mid-March. Tri-3 runs mid-April through mid-June. Sign-ups will be open two weeks before each Trimester begins. Sign-up to be a part of the same group you’ve been attending, or try something new! All current small group members are asked to sign-up again, in order for us to get an accurate count of numbers/slots available. It’s also a great opportunity for you to reassess/restate your commitment to your group.

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
