At Huron Chapel, we believe that as followers of Jesus, it is important that we continue to grow spiritually throughout our lifetime and to build strong Christian relationships through caring, listening, encouraging and teaching. We also believe that life change is best facilitated in small groups. Why? Simply, God created us to live in community. We were created to have a relationship with Him and with others. Small Groups are places to know and be known; to love and be loved; to serve and be served and to celebrate and be celebrated. Authentic life change occurs within the context of relationships. We encourage everyone to move from sitting in rows on Sunday morning to joining a circle of friends in a small group.
Joining a small group is a great way to meet new people and get connected. A small group is a community of people who gather weekly in an environment where they can make friends and encourage each other in their journey of faith.
Small Groups are an important part of our church life for a few reasons:
they help us to build community among our church family
you will get to know more people and know them more intimately
they give you the means and accountability to grow in your faith
what we would refer to as "pastoral care" is done in small groups
