We want every person to be involved in Small Groups! Why? Because life is better together!
Our next 7-week term of Small Groups will begin the week of September 16th. Church-wide we will study Transformed by Pastor Rick Warren. The frequency, times, and locations are determined by the hosts. Simply pick the one that meets at an open time in your schedule!
Transformed is a series that will guide us by exploring what the Bible has to say about the essential areas of our lives.
The world is shouting for our attention with answers to our relationship struggles, solutions to our financial trouble, and explanations to our search for meaning. But the world’s promises leave us empty and searching for more. God’s will is the only answer that promises to transform our lives from the inside out.
Join us on this powerful 7-week journey!
HOST A SMALL GROUP
We always encourage new Small Group hosts! If you love God, love people, love life -- and you've completed Growth Track -- then you're qualified! Allow God to use your life to impact others. Hosts simply:
- H - Have a Heart for God
- O - Open Their Place
- S - Serve a Snack
- T - Turn on a DVD
Training, materials and support are provided for all small group hosts prior to the term. Our team will be there to equip you with the tools you need to lead a meaningful gathering.

WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?
Small Groups are simply when people come together for a committed period of time for biblical encouragement and prayer. Groups meet in homes, restaurants and at the church at different times throughout the week. What often brings people together is life phase, interest or geographic location.
Small Groups are vital to our church because they are a powerful way to help more people experience the freedom and life only God can offer. A common prayer at our church is for the lost to be found and for the found to be encouraged, and one of the best avenues for biblical encouragement, accountability and friendship is through Small Groups.
In 2018, we have designated three semesters for small group studies: winter, spring and fall. The format for most small groups includes watching a teaching, answering discussion questions as a group afterwards and praying together. Our biggest expectations for you are commitment (to attendance and participation) and confidentiality (within your group).
As with most things, the more you invest into your small group, the more you will get out of it. We believe that through small groups, God will reveal himself to you in new ways and open your life up to new opportunities and possibilities. It's a short-term commitment with lasting benefits!
(Periodically Freedom Life will offer special interest groups throughout the year, i.e. Financial Peace. Information about this opportunities will be promoted accordingly.)
