Small groups

Building Relationships with One Another

Your next step in the process of growing into a committed follower of Jesus Christ is to belong to a Chapel Small Group! 

The early Christian church began by meeting in small groups called house churches where “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42-47).  In these house churches, or small groups, they grew in their relationship with God and each other as they practiced the "one another’s" found in Scripture, of which there are more than 30 (i.e. John 13:34 "love one another"; Hebrews 3:13 "encourage one another"; 1 Peter 4:9 "offer hospitality to one another").

The Bible is clear that Christian growth happens in relationships with other believers.  Therefore, Chapel Small Groups meet together to apply the Bible’s teaching to our lives, pray for one another, fellowship with one another, serve and care for one another, and hold each other accountable in our relationship with Christ. In God’s timing, we also seek to send out group members to begin new small groups.

Chapel Small Groups can meet at any time, and while we do have a few mid-week groups, most meet on Sunday afternoons or evenings.  The average group meets for two hours and consists of 10 to 12 people.  A typical Small Group meeting includes Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and food!
