GATHERING – Small Group Ministry Program Material



Gathering is a new ministry program centered on small groups. Each month, a group of 6-8 women meet together for fellowship, friendship and focus. These groups are designed to be small and intimate in order to build accountability and growth amongst each person as they discuss the monthly themed questions over a shared meal or coffee within the homes of group members.

Let us continue to build up an authentic, Christ-centered community every time we gather together.
