A Home Groups purpose is...
A relational environment for people where people who are strangers and acquaintances become a Discipleship Family. The goals are to strengthen our connections with God, with each other, and with God’s Word. We believe relationships are the best place for discipleship to occur. We have found that Home Groups create a safe place for people to journey towards a new, deeper, and life-shaping relationship with Jesus Christ and one another.

WHY ARE HOME GROUPS SO IMPORTANT?
Truly being a part of a church means participating both in our Sunday gatherings and Home Groups. Sundays are the time when we celebrate in worshipping our risen Lord Jesus together through singing, hearing the preaching of God’s Word, and partaking in communion. Smaller groups are necessary for the building up of the body in our relationships and life together. Both gatherings, the big and the small, meet different needs in the spiritual health and life of the Church.

HOW BIG IS EACH HOME GROUP?
Our groups are designed and intended to be small enough for people to get to know each other. When a group grows to 15 or more people we strongly encourage a new group to be started out of that original group.
WHAT IF I CANNOT ATTEND REGULARLY?
Consistent participation is very important for the health and stability of the groups. Due to the effect on the group as a whole, a minimum expectation is that individuals should attend more than half the meetings. Challenging schedules are something many people deal with and we encourage individuals and/or families to make Home Groups a priority in the forming of their weekly schedule.
