The Small Group Dynamic

Something special happens when there is eye contact. Walls come down, conversations take place, similarities are discovered and friendships emerge.

Small groups can establish a level of trust and intimacy that is more difficult to attain in more traditional, large-group settings – intimate spiritual relationships happen in circles. Small groups are also more flexible, taking on their own unique culture and creating an environment that allows participants to discover what it means to encourage one another, explore God’s teachings together, share each other’s joys and burdens, confess, forgive and pray, and all in a fun, welcoming way.

Our VISION is a congregation where members of all ages feel Connected, are Confident in their faith and are Comfortable sharing God’s love with one another, their families and others they come into contact with on a daily basis. We believe and pray that small groups can be a highly effective tool in helping us to achieve this vision and carry out our mission.

growth group circle wording

Growth Group –  a small group that comes together around an interactive discussion of God’s Word. 

Our sermon-series Growth Groups make use of materials based on Sunday’s sermon. Materials include sermon notes during worship and a discussion guide to take the discussion deeper in the groups. The format includes time for fellowship, relationship building, digging in the Word and joining in prayer. Groups meet in host homes/locations and are usually 6-12 people. During #StayHomeMN, we’ll meet virtually using online tools.
