Why join a group?
We are all on a journey. We might find ourselves near the beginning or we may find ourselves a little further along. Regardless there is a group for you; relational environments in which we together take steps towards growing as Jesus' disciples.
What types of groups are there?
We have various groups that correspond to where you might find yourself on your spiritual journey.
Starting Point Groups- These groups are for those who are spiritual seekers, spiritual returners and for those who want to ensure a solid foundation. This is an informal environment in which any question is welcomed, and Christianity is explored.
D-Groups- These are groups of 2-4 individuals, designed to help Christians grow in their relationship with God and build a firm foundation on the Bible.
Access Groups- These offer short-term opportunities for individuals to explore faith or a specific topic in the context of a group environment.
Community Groups- These are groups of 6-12 people that provide individuals the opportunity to connect with others, grow in their relationship with Christ, and experience community.
Advance- Advance is a leadership development group that equips and launches leaders into ministry.
Where do groups meet?
Groups typically meet in homes through out the Niagara Region, but there are a few that meet in our building.
What curriculum do the groups use?
The various groups use material that is tailored to the groups purpose. Starting Point uses material such as Live Know Grow or Introducing God. D-Groups use Discipleship Essentials, a 25 session discipleship book. Community Groups use material from our suggested curriculum list.
