Purpose: Small groups are one of the most important things that we do in Student Ministries. It’s the time each week for our students to come together and fellowship with other students in their grades and a time for in-depth discipleship and teaching from our amazing small group leaders.

When and Where:
5:00pm – 5:30pm Choir - meet in Choir Room 
5:30pm - 7:00pm - Small Groups and Games. Adult Leaders walk students from Choir to the 3rd Floor Sanctuary for Small Groups.
Spring Discipleship Plan:

6th Grade Small Group
Habits - semester long study on building good habits in our spiritual lives (e.g., worship, evangelism, memorizing scripture).
