Small Groups: “Make us One with Each Other”

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”Hebrews 10:24-25

We believe that transformation happens best in community, so we encourage everyone who worships with us to find a small group community where he or she can ask questions and learn from other like-minded believers. Groups meet throughout the week at various locations. Many of the groups meet on the church campus, but some of our groups meet throughout the local community. The goal of our small groups is taken from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, who challenged his early followers to “watch over one another in love.”
