Life is Better Connected

Group ministry helps people take the next step in their relationship with Jesus by connecting then into intentional faith building community. We offer a variety of expressions of groups and encourage people to find what works for them. We offer traditional small groups, groups based on topic, short term groups, Core Four groups, and men's and women's groups.

Small Groups

You Belong Here

We exist to provide a place for people to experience God and others in such a way that makes a difference in the individual, the community, and the world. We want to facilitate impactful relationships as people worship together, study together, serve together, and grow together.

What We Do
We help people connect into intentional faith building communities, that are broadly defined to provide diverse opportunities to meet the variety of needs that exist. We provide resources for groups to help them succeed and encourage and equip leaders. We foster groups that provide growth, care for one another and engage in serving others.

Two times a year we provide opportunities to connect to a small group. We host a Small Group Launch, where people come together to meet their new group and start the process of investing into this faith building community.

Please reach out to Jennifer Sellon, Director of Groups and Women's Ministry for additional information. or call 616.847.2540, ext. 1008

Core Four Groups

Core Four Groups are made up of four men or four women committed to pursuing a more intentional journey of discipleship. Core Four members dive deeply into scripture, encourage each other to live out their faith, practice mutual accountability, share their faith and life, and prepare to disciple others. 

Interested? Here’s what to do: 
• Invite three others people to join you in a Core Group
• Or sign up and we will form a group for you.
