What is a Small Group?
Small groups are the place where the church can live out the Great Commission. In Matthew 28:18-29 Jesus said: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Small Groups are where people can grow and build real authentic relationships. It becomes a safe place where people are not afraid to let down their walls and be open and transparent: A place where it’s OK to have struggles and hang-ups as we seek to find answers in God’s Word!
Our goal is for each member to do two things well. Love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind and the second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. (Matt. 22:37-40)
Some of our groups meet on campus at Buck Creek. These groups meet Sunday morning at 9:00am. Our Home Groups meets all throughout the week in different homes.
What is the purpose of our Small Groups?
The purpose of our groups is to provide each member with an Intentional Leader, to lead the group in a Relational Enviroment, to help them grow in the Discipleship Process.
How many people meet in a group?
Our desire is to keep all our groups small. This is important if life change is to take place. If the group size becomes too large, you tend to lose the intimacy of the group, and will diminish the discipleship process. Each group size is different, but ranges from 2 -18 members. Once your group reaches 18 members, it’s time to birth a new group.
Is childcare available?
We want our Home Groups to be kid friendly. We welcome children to our groups. However, we ask each group to work out details on their childcare.
How long do groups meet?
Each group varies but generally will last 1-2 hours.
What are the different types of Home Groups offered?
Right now we offer several different groups.
College/Career (18- 24)
Singles Co/Ed (24-30)
Young Couple’s Group
Sunday Morning Groups
It may be that Sunday morning just works best for you. We have groups from Nursery, Preschool, Children, Youth and Adults that are available.
What if I don’t like the group I first attend?
We only ask that you attend a group for 2 or 3 weeks before trying a new one. The small group pastor can help assist you in finding a group that fits your needs.
