What is a Small 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!
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.
