Groups carry out the purpose of the church to connect people with God and others. Our groups are comprised of church members and non-church members. They meet at a variety of times, days and places. All Groups have the essential elements of Acts 2:42-47:
Community Building: Fellowship (sometimes involves food), prayer for and with each other, accountability and caring for each other.
Bible Study: Studying applicable Bible Studies with the purpose of knowing Christ and making Christ known.
Mission/Multiply: Outward focus of ministry and mission through projects to multiply believers, other groups and churches.
We have two basic types of Groups:
- Transformation Groups: The size limited to one leader plus two to three others (same gender) that covenant together to regular meetings, transformative study, and mutual accountability.
- T-Groups: Just beginning on your spiritual journey? Come to understand what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, see how you fit into the church family and become knowledgeable about navigating the Bible. Study is based on Francis Chan’s book: Multiply
- T1-Groups: Continue to deepen your knowledge of how to live as a disciple and lead others to grow as a disciple. Study is based on Greg Ogden’s book: Discipleship Essentials
- T2-Groups: Join others in growing as biblical leaders. Study is based on Greg Ogden’s book: Leadership Essentials
- Connect Groups: Various groups, large or small that meet on a regular basis to Connect people with God and others
- Bible Study-Seek to know the Bible through in-depth study and personal applications. Growing in Christlikeness means knowing and doing the Word.
- Support- Provide a safe place for people to connect in dealing with life issues. Together they deal with common issues or hurdles in life with truth and principles based on God’s Word.
- Mission-Pursue a God given ministry objective (common cause, passion, burden) that has a kingdom impact.

“T” is for Transformation. One leader plus two to three others (same gender) who do a discipleship study together. New believers start in the initial T-Group and progress through T-1, T-2, and T-3 Groups as they continue their spiritual journey. T-Groups have multiplied rapidly and many of the new generation T-Groups need members. Please contact Chari Wester or Jerri Chesney at 893-1709 to find out more.
