Why Are Small Groups Important?
Small Groups at Beech Springs Church exist to carry out the vision of Beech Springs Church by living out Acts 2:42-47, providing the opportunity for people to reach their full potential through connection and growth as individuals, couples and families in the love and service of Jesus Christ.
At Beech Springs Church, we believe that connection to one another is key to the growth of our local church and to establishing the Kingdom of God in the world around us. Small groups are an integral part of Beech Springs Church and we believe that they will be an integral part of your spiritual growth as well. Small Groups are a great way to meet new friends, grow in your relationship with God, and make a difference in your world. We encourage everyone to be involved in some type of Small Group and to invite your friends to join as well!
DOING LIFE TOGETHER
CONNECT WITH GOD
We believe we were all created to be in a personal, authentic relationship with God. You can connect with God in personal ways and public ways. Our worship services every Sunday offer public, shared opportunity for everyone to experience and connect with God through worship. Small Groups is another way to connect with one another and God through gathering together (Matthew 18:20). It is also important that we all learn to connect with God personally and privately. Reading the Bible and praying are essential activities for everyone who desires to connect with God.
CONNECT WITH ONE ANOTHER
We believe that life is meant to be shared with others, and that God intends for us to experience life together in relationship. By connecting with others in one of our Small Groups, you will find friends and people to do life with. You will learn their story, their faith journey, and how their story relates with your own. We are much stronger together than we are separate.
CONNECT WITH OUR COMMUNITY
We believe that a relationship with God will compel us to make a difference in the world around us. If God so loved the world, then so will we. God longs to bring healing, hope, and grace to a broken world, and He uses us to do it. When you connect to serving the needs of people, the community, and the world, you will also connect to the heart of God and understand who He is on a deeper level.
