Small Groups

Scroll down for descriptions.

Because of COVID-19, our small groups are meeting virtually. For many, this may actually make attendance easier! If you’d like to join any of these groups virtually, fill out the form below and indicate which group(s) you are interested in!

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.

Winter Season

Groups start the week of January 12
