Small Groups Ministry
Throughout the history of the church, small groups have played a vital role. From the time of Christ to today, these values have changed countless lives and helped the church to grow and reach thousands while at the same time provide the closeness of a well-knitted community. Paradoxically, it gives the church the ability to grow larger and smaller at the same time! Small groups enhance interpersonal relationships and help both you individually and the church as a whole to grow spiritually. The elders are encouraging everyone to be involved with a small group.
A number of small groups are organizing with different curricula available for each group.
Talk to an elder or small group member to find out which small group best suits you.
Small Groups Meetings
The Ragamuffin Gospel small group meets Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Worship/Fellowship Center. For more information, please see Tim Thompson.
For the small group that meets at the Cooperriders’ please contact Dan or Cathy for details.
The Rick Petry/Chet Rodabaugh small group will next meet on alternating Sundays. Please see Rick or Chet for more information.
