Small Groups

We are preparing to begin a new season of small groups the week of September 10. There are three types of small groups that we offer: Connect, Gather and Scatter. 


Connect groups offer an easy level of entry with a very low level of commitment. These groups are perfect if you are just checking out small groups and want to take your time before jumping into a Gather group.


Gather groups go a little further in depth with their discussions, and they have a higher level of commitment within our trimester schedule. Each trimester lasts around 10 weeks, with most groups meeting on a weekly basis during that time.


Scatter groups operate on a different calendar schedule than our other groups, and each of them have a special focus. If you see that one of these focused topics apply to you and your current life situation, then this is for you.

 

For more information on the small groups that we offer please contact Jenny Earnest.
