Small Groups

 Grow and Deepen Your Faith in a SMALL GROUP

It is our belief that when people meet in Small Groups they will begin as strangers or acquaintances, and will grow to become friends–even as close as family. The groups provide an opportunity for Christian fellowship, a way for members to feel more connected to the community of faith, and as a result, a closer relationship with God.

Nurturing Faith “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42).

Small Groups at West Side Church seek to provide opportunities for Christians seeking to grow in faith by building relationships with each other through small group gatherings. 

The groups typically consist of 8-10 persons and meet in member’s homes on a regular basis. The format of the meetings may vary according to each individual group, but all include prayer and sharing, are positive, nurturing and supportive.

One group met and worked on a community service project of stuffing/labeling envelopes for the American Cancer Society. While they worked at that task, they took turns turning the crank on an ice cream freezer and made homemade peach ice cream. While the ice cream cured, they all went out to eat at a local restaurant, and then came back to the house to eat the peach ice cream for dessert.

The goal of Christian Home Groups is to develop authentic Christian relationships using a variety of approaches that will support and nurture us in our Christian walk.
