Helping people see God and participate in His redemptive story in circles rather than rows
At Peoples Church, we believe that God created each of us to be a part of loving intentional relationships that help us become more of who God desires for us to be. We have found that people grow better in circles (like Small Groups) than they do in rows.
We have women’s, men’s, and co-ed Small Groups that meet all over the Valley. Please email Ronson Root at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How do I join a Small Group?
- Good news! We have many different groups available, and we would be happy to help you find the perfect group for you! We want you to get involved in a Small Group as soon as possible, so sign up by emailing Ronson Root at email@example.com for more information.
How long do Small Groups last?
- A Small Group is like family; most of them last for years, while others may multiply and lead into starting new Small Groups after a period of time.
Will there be homework? If so, how much?
- The nature of most Small Groups doesn’t have homework in a book. Depending on the Small Group leader, they may lean on the weekly distributed Small Group questions that will further dig into the recent Sunday message, focus on daily devotionals suggested, or weekly discussions and considerations that you can compare and apply to your life. Overall, being involved in a Small Group will give you a unique opportunity to grow more spiritually and learn more about God, while developing friendships at the same time.
I have children, is it okay that I bring them to Small Group?
- What happens in the group is so important to our transformation that it deserves our complete focus and attention. That is why we recommend not bringing children to the group.
- While there are some groups that have child care, the other non-child care groups suggest: hiring a babysitter during the times you’re at your Small Group, leaving the child at a home with a family member, or have husbands and wives switch weeks on babysitting while the other attends their Small Group.
- If you have children and are unable to arrange the suggested ideas, please email Ronson Root at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I join more than one group?
- We ask that you commit to only one group so that you can be fully dedicated to grow deeper with that particular community in your Small Group. Also, this allows us to reach wide and offer space for everyone who wants to join a group.
How do I become a Small Group leader?
- The supported way to become a Small Group leader is a three-step process: join a group, serve as an apprentice, and then be recommended as a leader. We do ask that each Small Group enlists a co-leader from the start, so there is a plan to let others experience leadership in a community as your group grows and multiplies.
- If you have led a Small Group prior, please email Ronson Root at email@example.com for more information.
What about recovery groups?
- Peoples Church hosts a Celebrate Recovery meeting on Thursday evenings. The gathering will be held in the Jackie Johnson Room in Building 6, room 601. Dinner will be provided at 5:30 p.m., and the meeting will follow at 6:30 p.m. This is a free recovery opportunity every week, and you do not need to sign up to attend; you simply show up. While we are very happy and proud to host this group, it is important to note that Celebrate Recovery is not directly affiliated with our church.
For any other questions that were not mentioned above, please email Ronson Root at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
