Small Groups

Why Small Groups?

Small Groups serve three purposes:

  • to build friendships
  • to grow in faith together
  • to serve together

We have small groups that meet in different homes around Newark, Avon Grove, and Elkton. We meet for 8 week seasons. The Winter Season is running from the end of January through mid March.

Fall Season

Groups start the week of September 16
