Emmanuel Baptist Church - Small Groups

Why Small Groups? Small groups are about believers mutually caring for and encouraging one another in accountable relationships by growing in Christ-likeness through God's word, worship, prayer, and witness. Our ultimate purpose in small groups at Emmanuel is Discipleship: to make lifelong followers of Jesus Christ  in all nations, who are living obediently, growing in maturity, bearing fruit ,and being transformed into Christlikeness. We believe that small groups can be the primary vehicle and best context for discipleship

Therefore, our desire is to see EVERY PERSON at Emmanuel committed to one SMALL GROUP or BIBLE STUDY where they can:
  • Grow in their knowledge, application and obedience of God's word;
  • Be involved in corporate prayer for the body of Christ;
  • Experience authentic Biblical accountability for spiritual growth;
  • Build significant relationships with other believers
  • Genuinely care for the needs of the body and having their own needs met;
  • Use their spiritual gifts; and be involved with outreach and multiplication

When & Where do Small Groups Meet? Our Small groups 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 2-3 hours, and consists of Bible study, discussion, prayer, accountability, perhaps worship and food. Our hope is to place you in a group on a day or weeknight  that works for you and is in close geographic proximity to where you live.

How Do I Join a small Group? After you have had a chance to attend a Newcomers Luncheon and foundations I, and have had a chance to get to know us and for us to know you we can work to find a small group that is right for you!
