Focus of this Ministry: As an integral part of the Discipleship Pathway, small groups are one way people become more like Jesus. Participation in a small group is a significant part of church involvement leading to spiritual growth and personal connection. Group leaders are responsible for providing an environment where this growth and connection can occur.

Time Commitment: Small Groups are divided into two semesters:
o The Fall Semester runs early September to mid-Nov.
o The Winter/Spring Semester runs mid-January to early May. Leaders can choose to lead for one or both semesters. There is a built-in break between the semesters and groups are encouraged to take a two-week break sometime during the Winter/Spring semester. Groups meet weekly for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
