Faith Groups

Sharing Our Lives, Growing in Faith

The disruptions of the pandemic have encouraged us to find new ways of being in relationship with one another. While the technology we use to connect may be new, Church tradition offers a model for relationships that is still relevant today: intentional small groups.

Since the first Easter, Christians have been gathering in small groups. These gatherings offer the chance not only to grow our faith, but to develop deep, life-giving relationships with one another. This time of pandemic has reminded us of the power of connection. While we can’t yet gather in larger groups, we can gather online and within our households in smaller groups.
