Group Life: A Necessary Component
At Redeemer we believe small group life is a vital and necessary piece of our Christian formation. In addition to the larger gathering of worship, where we offer corporate praises to God with other believers and receive spiritual food through word and sacrament, we think the smaller gathering in people’s homes is crucial, particularly at a time when people, despite the busyness of life and entertainment-based relationships, lack a sense of authentic community and feel more disconnected and alone than ever.
What should I expect in a Redeemer small group?
It’s pretty simple. We hang out, eat food, study God’s word, share our joys and sorrows, and pray for each other. We also engage in service projects around the city. Please contact the group leaders to receive details on meeting time and place, as the stated info is subject to change.
