Winter 2019 Session

January Through May


Belong Groups are open small groups of up to 20 people for the purpose of fostering community and growth. We believe that the most effective way to grow spiritually is to be in community with other people who are following Jesus. (Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 10:19-25) 


Belong Groups can be built around a location (i.e. home groups), a demographic (i.e. women’s group), or an activity (i.e. walking group).



Belong Groups can meet weekly, once a month, or anywhere in between. All groups last for five months and then take a month off. This helps the facilitators stay fresh and also allows people to try different groups each session if they choose.



While each group will have different activities and environments, they will all share one thing in common: the main content of the group discussions will be processing the Sunday sermon from the week before. This helps the whole church stay on the same page together. It also helps us dive deeper into conversations about understanding the sermon and how to apply it to our lives. If you missed the sermon, you can listen to it here. In the Resources link under each sermon, you will find the bulletin which contains the sermon notes and a Digging Deeper section to help you prepare for the Belong Group discussion.



We invite you to find a group below that appeals to you and check it out. If you don’t connect well to the first one you try, then just try a different one. It’s okay to check out more than one until you feel like you’ve found the best place to be in community.
