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 through Sunday, July 26. Small Group meetings will continue to be online through the summer. (These dates may be extended as necessary.) Many Faith Groups are finding ways to stay connected, and are meeting virtually through Zoom or Google Meet, or are keeping in contact by phone and email.
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.
