Small Groups break for the summer

Summer is here and in West Michigan, there's many things to do - so, our regular offering of small group ministries are taking a break.

We encourage you to soak up some sun, hit the beach, take nice evening walks, get out and enjoy!

Maybe it's a good time to work on your golf game or  you want to get some added work done in the yard.

We'll resume our small group ministry in September, so check back with us in early August to see what's ahead.

For those that do want to continue with some type of small group meeting for the summer, Pastor Clint is leading a mid week group. Read the the column to the right and discover more.

Want To Stay Connected???

For those that wish to stay connected, please join me on Wednesday nights beginning Wednesday, June 14th @ 7:00 p.m.

The study is "Bible Answers to Tough Questions."

Format: Bring your Bible and question. We'll study this and  you will walk away with an answer and better understanding of God's Word on that topic.

We meet at the "mobile office" aka Starbucks on 6333 Kalamazoo Avenue (in front of Celebration Cinema South).

Wednesday meeting dates:

June 14 and June 21

July 5, July 12, July 19

Small Groups Provide Three Things

1 - A place to CONNECT.

…yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him.   1 Corinthians 9:22 TLB

It is easy to feel alone in a crowd. Small groups are an open door into the life of our church family. When you are in a small group, you experience the love and strength of biblical community.

2 - A place to PROTECT.

We know what real love is because Christ gave up His life for us. And so we also ought to give up our lives for our Christian brothers and sisters.   1 John 3:16 NLT

Imagine someone you can call when you’re discouraged, someone to pray with when you are doubting, and someone who can teach you more about what God is like. Imagine a loving community of people who notice when you are away, gently sharpen you when you need it, and who help you share your faith with others. Small groups are a place where you are protected and supported.

3 - A place to GROW.

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.   Proverbs 27:17

Small groups are a place you can be equipped to become more like Jesus and to live a faith-filled life. We believe that every person is created with God-given potential to make a difference in the world. Small groups are a place where there are like-minded people who believe in you. This is how leaders are developed. We want to see you grow, flourish, and become all that God has called you to be! 

We actively offer small groups in the fall and winter semesters in addition to the two groups on the top of this page.
