Why Small Groups? Our Mission Statement as a church is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, to teach, baptize and disciple unto maturity in Christ. We believe that small groups can provide the best context for true discipleship to happen. Sustained life change takes place best in the context of intentional relationships with other believers, in circles more than rows, where believers are personally challenged and encouraged in their relationship with God and others.

Our Key purpose for Small groups is Discipleship, to be making lifelong followers of Jesus Christ  in all nations, who are living obediently, growing in maturity, bearing fruit, being transformed into the character of Christ, and serving in the body of Christ with their Spiritual gifting.

Our goal in small groups is to relationnally connect people in such a way that it encourages them to be growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ, continuing to take steps forward in their faith relationship with Christ while growing in their relationship with other believers, and serving in the body of Christ.

The Secondary purpose of our small groups at Emmanuel is Caring. We believe that small groups can also provide the best context for people to be cared for and to care for others in the body of Christ. We are called to love and meet the needs of one another, especially as we go through difficult times in our lives and faith, which are inevitable. 

Thirdly 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 committed to one SMALL GROUP or BIBLE STUDY where they can be growing in their knowledge, application and obedience of God's word; be experiencing authentic biblical accountability for spiritual growth; building significant relationships with other believers, be genuinely caring for the needs of the body and have their own needs met; be using 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? 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 hereCheck 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. Then 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. Thank you for taking this important step in your Spiritual walk and getting connected to the body of Christ here at Emmanuel.
