Family Group Ministry
This is where we get to know each other and meet one another’s needs.
 
Each family group is a diverse group of Christians within our larger church family who grow together in our love for Christ and His church.
 
Family groups are for everyone regardless of age, marital status or spiritual maturity. Each group is a small flock within our flock, a refuge for comfort, strength and growth led by a biblically-qualified shepherd into fellowship, prayer, singing, Bible study and the practice of each person’s spiritual gifts.
