You Aren't the Church of the Future, You are the Church Now"'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.' 'Ah, Lord GOD!' I said, 'I do not know how to speak. I am too young!' But the LORD answered me, Do not say, 'I am too young.'" - Jeremiah 1:5-7

Small Group Discipleship MinistryJesus didn't just drop the Bible in the laps of His followers and then head back to a cushy spot in Heaven with His Father. No. He came, ate, spoke, listened, laughed, cried, preached, and served among and with us. Jesus started with a small group and then branched out from there. Small Group Discipleship Ministry follows the model that Jesus gave us.
A group of peers gathers with a leader about twice a month at a day, time, and location convenient for the group to share what's going on in their lives, encouragement, and formation of their faith. There are also opportunities to serve various communities in need as a small group and to connect with other small groups for social events.
Sign-up for Small Group Ministry for the 2013-2014 year on the High School Youth Ministry Registration Page.
