SMALL GROUPS

CONNECTING TO JESUS AND ONE ANOTHER


The Power of Relationships

The Christian life is one of learning to live in relationships.  In relationship with God, enabled by Jesus, empowered by Holy Spirit, in a community of believers, for the world.  All these relationships bring their own joys and difficulties.  It should come as no surprise that learning about our role in them happens best in community as well.

We have groups all around Rock Hall for men, women, and students meeting all during the week in different places at different times.  If you desire to grow, these are an ideal place to begin.

What’s the difference between a small group and a bible study?  Small groups are more focused on Christian fellowship; learning to live out our faith as we go along.  Typically, Bible Studies are more content related; focused on studying a book or a subject.  Bible studies are places of relationship as well, but it isn’t as intentionally a part of the gathering as a Small Group.  They are both important, so yes we offer them both.

We will have a big push for small groups every fall and spring while in the summer we focus our groups on informal gatherings.  Our groups are always open to have new folks join in at any time.

So, I’ll close with a question, what are you waiting for?

Just fill out the contact form below and we will follow up with some information about how to get connected in a group.
