Small Groups


What Are Small Groups?LifeTogether1
They are a gathering of people who meet regularly, with common interests, to develop closer relationships with one another and build up our faith in Christ.  Each group is somewhat unique in offering a way for individuals to connect with one another sharing the stories of life together, growing together in Christ and finding ways of serving others also.

Why Consider Participating?

Small groups make it possible for persons to connect personally with others, making a special place by creating strong bonds of friendship, and sharing their faith life together.  Christians grow spiritually when they regularly encounter God's grace through conversation and shared life's stories that can't be accomplished in large settings.  Group participants help one another grow by encouraging one another, trusting God completely.

If you have an interest or a suggestion for a small group to be developed, whether recreational, social, fellowship or spiritual in nature, please contact Pastor Jim Knuth .
