Small Groups
Small Groups

We are convinced that you will grow as a Christian and in your connectivity to this fellowship by joining a small group. In small groups we learn to "do life"  together by encouraging one another, praying for each other and making our faith relevant to one another.

Some groups are designed for fellowship, to participate in an activity and to get to know one another and other groups are designed for study and faith growth. All groups are intended to be groups of support, connectivity designated to focus on God.

Review the small groups below and if you like one or two - you can register in advance during church shrive or just show up. No reservations required. If you have any questions feel free to call the host or contact Pastor Emilio via phone or email.
