“We’re better together!” We say that around Hope+Elim a lot! We say it because it’s true. God created us to live in community with one another. In a world of isolation, superficial relationships, and speed, Jesus invites us to experience real, authentic relationships in the church. Small Groups at Hope+Elim are a primary opportunity for growth in community. We believe transformation happens best in relationships centered on Christ. Groups at Hope+Elim all look very different, but hold one thing in common: a desire to see every person growing as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
What are small groups?
Small Groups are groups of usually 6-10 people who meet regularly to read the Bible, pray together, connect in Christ-centered relationships, grow in their relationship with God and serve the world around them. Groups exist for men, women, and couples, as well as age-based groups for young adults and college students.
Simply put, small groups live (Upward) in relationship with God, (INWARD) in relationship with each other, and (OUTWARD) in relationship with the city and world around them.
