Small Groups

Small Groups

Small groups are in integral part of our community at St. John. They provide the proper environment in which people develop trusting relationships that encourage one another to grow and live out Biblical truth.

While our groups take on a variety of formats the core of our small group ministry is centered around the Christ Care model. What makes Christ Care unique is its focus on four specific areas of engagement:

Community Building and Care
Christ Care groups are safe, trusting communities where people can support, nurture, encourage and care for one another.

Biblical Equipping
Group members explore God’s Word together and find specific ways to live it out between meetings.

Prayer and Worship
Group members grow in their ability to pray and worship God – both individually and as a group.

Missional Service
Each group shares the blessings God has given them by reaching out and serving the church and community in a way that reflects the gifts God has brought together in that group.

No matter what your interests are, our groups are designed to build lasting relationships, have fun, help you grow spiritually, and be a source of support and encouragement we all need.
