In life, you'll have up and downs, bumps and bruises. You'll have things to celebrate and things you would rather not share. We get it, and living in community is crucial to a Christian life. That's why we have the church. That's also why we offer small groups; the chance to come together with people in the same stage of life.
We do this with the goal of encouragement, praying for each other, connecting, loving, and even sometimes correcting each other. In the early church, Jesus and the disciples modeled a small group ministry by sharing life's journey in a community setting. Our hope is that our church can be a community of friends engaged in spreading the Gospel and making disciples much like the church in Acts 2:42 - 47. That doesn't happen in a large group setting such as Sunday mornings. So, we have small groups to help each other out.
