As we continue to follow the Lord’s leading together as a church, it’s His intent that each of us would be equipped to be and to do what He has called us to. These groups are a great opportunity to make ourselves available to Him so that He can equip us to join Him in His work!

Small Group Ministry


“Leading Life-Changing Small Groups” by Bill Donahue, former Director of Leader Development & Group Life for Willow Creek Church. This nine week study teaches small group leaders the basics of leading a successful group. Regardless of whether a person is leading for the first time or has been doing so for years, these sessions will enable them to more effectively facilitate group discussion  and to encourage and support group members in a way that leads to authentic  and lasting life change.


Dates and times to be announced. If you are interested please contact Pastor Rod.
