Get Connected: Small Group Ministry

It can be easy to feel like another face in the crowd, yet we were never meant to live out God’s purposes alone. We need each other. So how do you begin to make friends and grow spiritually? Small Group Ministry might hold the answer.

One of the best things about small group ministry is having people in your life that can encourage, support and challenge you in your faith. A small group usually consists of six to 10 people who have a designated time (weekly or monthly) and place to learn about God, build each other up, and have a lot of fun at the same time.

Small groups form in the fall and during lent for church-wise themed studies. From there many small groups decide to continue gathering for study on their own. Pastor Ivy has a variety of resources your small group may use if you are looking for your next study. This is a wonderful way to get to know some great people-couples, singles, friends, strangers, neighbors, co-workers or interest groups such as knitters, bikers, Italian cooks, pet lovers, parents of children of all ages. The list is endless! Once you have a group together, St. Mark’s offers a variety of studies that you can use in your group.
