Small Groups

Scroll down for descriptions.

Because of COVID-19, some of our small groups are meeting virtually, or outdoors, or with other precautions. Please reach out to each leader to find out what they are doing. If you can’t find something that works for you, please reach out on our contact form and we will work to find you one!

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.

Spring Season 2021

Groups start the week of April 26
