What is a Faith Group?
Small Groups at Messiah are more than just a Bible study. We intentionally live life together building meaningful relationships in order to help each other grow in Christ, worship together, serve others, and care for others in authentic relational community. We want that for you!
Special Notice: Messiah Church will be offering online-only worship until further notice. Small Group meetings will continue to be online through the winter.
Step into a Small Group experience to find a place to belong. For more information about Small Groups and how to get connected to a group that is right for you, contact Kami Pohl.
Each of these groups has a chair waiting for you:
