Why join a group?
Our Mission is to develop passionate followers of Jesus. In order to accomplish this we desire for everyone to participate in opportunities to Grow in Groups or engage in a Spiritual Friendship (mentoring relationship)! Check out the various purposes of the groups that will help you develop into a passionate follower of Jesus. There are five types of groups that have a different purpose in mind. Contact Pastor John Foley at [email protected] or 763-552-7979 with questions about the group you're searching for.
Jesus’ main plan for the church is for us to make disciples who continue to make disciples- followers of Jesus who become more and more like him. Join us as we seek to have 50 mentoring relationships this year where you go through 52 stories in the Bible together in a one on one discipling relationship. If you would be interested in either being a mentor or being mentored as a spiritual friend contact John Foley, Pastor of Spiritual Formation and Discipleship, at 763-552-7979 or [email protected]
Being Together: While all groups build relationships, this is the first priority for these groups, such as assimilation groups, recreation groups, networking groups, etc.
Learning Together: Learning groups focus primarily around a topic, curriculum, or other study material, and are most often represented in churches by Bible study groups.
Caring Together: Caring groups come together around a common need like self-help groups, support groups, parenting groups, etc.
Working Together: Working Together: This broad category includes all small groups that are primarily focused on an agreed-upon task, like accountability groups, service groups, etc.
Mixed-Purpose Groups: These groups have more than one of the four agendas in the previous groups so they equally divide their time between various agendas.
