Small Group Ministry Life at First Church
There are different types of small groups. The meeting place can be anywhere (it's actually encouraged to meet in homes and businesses). The size of the group can vary but anything under 40 people is ideal.
The purpose of the small group: For believers to regularly gather together and be the body of Christ. In other words: 1) gather 2) form community 3) be the hands and feet of Jesus (this mean's people's spiritual gifts come out and are utilized)
If it doesn't meet the criteria of the GROUP breakdown, it's a club or a clique which is not good for healthy discipleship.
Coffee with Pastor Ken
Everyone is welcome to stop by the church on Tuesday mornings from 10 to 11 am to have coffee with Pastor Ken. This is an informal time of getting to know each other better outside of our Sunday morning worship service.
Mid Day Prayer
Attention all Prayer Warriors! Join us at the church for a time of prayer for our church, community, country and the world. We meet on Friday mornings at 11 am for an hour of discussion and prayer.
