I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 ESV
But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. John 4:14 ESV
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 ESV

|““If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
The most attractive thing in the world is our love for God and for one another. No matter what we do, and how well we do it, if we do not have love, we are nothing. Small groups are all about sharing God’s love with one another. It has to happen in smaller groups during the week because it can’t fully happen during a Sunday service. That’s why it doesn’t matter how big we grow, because the true work of love in the name of Jesus Christ happens as we gather in smaller groups.
If you think about it, where do the real changes in your life happen, and who has the most influence in your life. The most influential people in your life are probably a very small group. Your marriage is a 1 on 1 relationship. Your parents — that’s 2 on 1 (or for many today, 1 on 1). You probably only have about 6-10 people you’d call close friends and who you’ve given a voice in your life, and who you would drop everything to help if they had a problem. The real stuff of life changing relationships happens in small groups.
We encourage everyone in the church to get into a weekly small group. They meet in many places around the city and are on different days of the week. If you would like to connect with one, please contact us and we’ll find one that suits you.
