Why Small Groups?
Where, in the average church, is there an opportunity for troubled church members to discuss their marital conflicts, their problem children or the ethical problems that arise on the job? Where can people “let down their hair”, take off their masks, pray for one another and study Scripture? Where can others with similar interests and common needs go?
To small groups – that’s where!
Lancaster Vineyard is committed to forming a church community knit together by mature relationships. Our vision is to be a church where nobody stands alone. Small Groups are the primary vehicle to accomplishing this goal.
So What Are Small Groups?
Small Groups are groups of six to 20 people who meet on a regular basis to care for each other and grow in their relationship with the Lord. We learn to care for each other through prayer, teaching and encouragement. We grow in our relationship with God through Bible study, worship and prayer. Kinships also help us develop friendships as we share our common interests and felt needs.
Small Groups are casual as we meet in homes throughout the Lancaster area. Some meet at the Vineyard. You may choose a small group that meets at a convenient time or location for you or you may choose a group that is focusing on a topic of particular interest to you. Whatever the reason, you’re invited to be a part of our community as we grow to be apprentices of Jesus.
