Small Groups 2016-2017

“The discovery of God lies in the daily and the ordinary, not in the spectacular and the heroic. If we cannot find God in the routines of home and shop, then we will not find him at all. “ —Richard Foster

This year’s Small Groups’ theme, “Small Things Big Impact," encourages us to take a breath and really explore how God is working in the ordinary moments of our lives. We can zoom out and look at the world through our Jesus lens. As we notice what God is doing, take action to pursue his work and talk and celebrate it, we begin to discover a joy in engaging with the world around us. We're convinced it's noticing and participating in the small things he's doing, one built upon the other that will sustain and deepen our relationships with the people around us and create a big impact for God this year. So please join small groups as we gather and meet together regularly as a primary way for us to experience and live out authentic Christian community.
