CIRCLES small group ministry

In churches full of rows and pews, CIRCLES are the best way to grow together. In rows, it's easy for people to fall away without others knowing right away-- but in a CIRCLE, every person can easily see and communicate with others in the group.

CIRCLES are never-ending.
There isn’t a starting point or an ending point. People can join at any time and not feel like they’ve missed out.

We all need people that will push us into our destiny.
This is the biggest bonus of being involved in a Circle group. This is the bonus of COMMUNITY.

“They worshiped together regularly… met in small groups in homes… and shared their meals with great joy and thankfulness, praising God. The whole city was favorable to them, and each day God added to them all who were being saved.”
|Acts 2:46-47|
