Why Small Groups?

Small groups are one of the ways that we live out our mission of ‘Life means more’ at Grandview.  You can come to church on Sunday mornings, even go to a Sunday school class, or serve in the children’s ministry – all of those are very good things, and we encourage them!  But real community is found in our small groups that meet throughout the week in the community.  This is the place where you get to know people – really get to know them.  This is the place where you pray with them and for them, live life alongside them, grieve with them, and celebrate with them, and they with you.

Our groups focus on at least one aspect of fellowship, service, and study, though each of these are integral to small groups at Grandview.  Our groups meet throughout the week at the church, in homes, in coffee shops, and many other places.

If you’re new to Grandview and don’t quite know where to start, let us know which groups sound like what you’re looking for by clicking on the ‘Sign Up or Learn More’ button, and we’ll put you in touch with the leaders.

Don’t see a group that interests you or fits your schedule?  Interested in starting a new group?  Contact the discipleship team coordinator, Kristen Mudrack, at kemudrack@milligan.edu.
