EXPERIENCE LIFE TOGETHER

God created us to be in community with one another and experience life with other people. Small groups exist to bring people together and to make life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to God’s people. Personal growth does not happen in isolation: therefore, Covenant offers a number of ways to get connected through small groups. One of Jesus’ first acts in ministry was to form a small group. It is in small groups that God uses others to bring healing, support, and encouragement to our lives, providing an opportunity for people to help carry one another’s burdens. Please check out our current listing of small groups below or contact Wendy Hicks for further information.
