There are many reasons to consider joining a small group at St James. Being part of a small group provides an intentional way to grow closer to God together and the mobility to live in Christ’s kingdom. The model of the early church is gathering together, sacrificing for each other, and reading the word of God with open hearts. Jesus taught his disciples in a small group. Therefore, being a part of a small group is an essential part of the life of disciples being transformed into the image of Christ through the Holy Spirit.

We gather and seek the good for others in Christ’s name, not out of obligation, but out of the genuine overflow of the love of God.

What is a Small Group?

A Small Group is an opportunity for the body of Christ to commit to meeting together on a regular basis to study scripture, worship and pray.  In doing so, we glorify God and connect relationally with one another.

What do we do in Small Groups?

We make disciples of Jesus who know the love of God, who have experienced his forgiveness and healing power, and who are being equipped for ministry.

What is a Disciple?

A disciple is one who abides in Jesus having a mind through which Christ thinks, a heart through which Christ loves, a voice through which Christ speaks, and hands through which Christ loves.
