Growth Track is suspended during Phase 2

Why should I join a small group?

It is through doing life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others by bringing support and encouragement to our lives. Even when you may not realize you need it, your Small Group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey. You should join a small group because we’re Better Together.
