Why Small Groups? Our Mission as a church is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, to teach, baptize and  to disciple unto maturity in Christ. We believe that small groups can provide the best context for true discipleship to happen because Small groups relationally connect people in such a way that encourages them to be growing spiritually.  Spiritual growth takes place best in the context of intentional relationships with other believers.  
While the key purpose for Small groups is Discipleship, a Secondary purpose of our small groups at Emmanuel is Physical and Spiritual Care. We believe that small groups can also provide the best context for people to be cared for and to care for others in  and by the body of Christ.
Finally, small groups provide a place for all believers to Serve the body of Christ with their talents, and Spiritual gifting.
Therefore, our Vision is to see Every person at Emmanuel connected and committed to a Small Group, Bible Study group or Ministry Group, where they have the opportunity to connect relationally and grow spiritually. 
When & Where do Small Groups Meet? Our Small groups usually meet every week, in different homes throughout the County or at our Church Building, on various days and nights during the week. They cover various topics, have various ages represented, but all have the same format. A typical small group meeting lasts about 2 hours, and consists of Bible study, discussion, prayer, and usually food. we will do our best to place you in a group on a day or weeknight that works for you and/or that is in close geographic proximity to where you live.

How Do I Join a small Group? We can work to find a small group that is right for you! We do recommend that you start by checking out our Small Groups Covenant here so you know the expectations of group members. Check out the list below of the Small Groups that we have and see if perhaps there is one that might be a good fit for you and/or fill out the form and someone will get back to you. Please note that some groups are "open" which means available to new members,  and some are "closed" which means that they are in full or not taking in new members at this time.
