Our Small Groups are the heartbeat of our connections with each other. A Small Group is a place where you can grow in your relationship with Jesus while growing into a greater understanding of what the Church is and how we take part in being the Church. We believe that Small Groups are a great place to develop and maintain a healthy Christian life.
Small Groups gather together to go through a lesson that is based on the sermon from the previous week. The lesson includes a time of Bible study, application, and prayer. This allows for a natural growth as groups experience true community and become a picture of the Church. Again, the goal of each group is to encourage and challenge each other to fulfill the great commission (Matt. 28:18-20) by using their gifts, talents, and abilities (1 Peter 4:10) and to serve one another by meeting each other’s needs (Galatians 6:2).
At Christ’s Church we believe it is vital to connect to others in healthy and growing relationships. Jesus never intended us to go through the joys and trials of life alone. A Small Group is a place for each of us to be real with each other so that we can help each other along toward maturity in Jesus.
Small Groups meet throughout the week. Most groups meet on weeknights, but some meet during the day, morning, or on weekends. Small Groups meet in each other’s homes all over the greater Joplin area.
