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.

2022-2023 Small Group Seasons

We run our small groups in three seasons so that our leaders get breaks, and because we find it increases engagement. We hope you can join us!

  • Sept 12 – Nov 11
