WHAT ARE SMALL GROUPS?

Small Groups are the perfect way to get connected at Valley Mills. Small Groups meet at various times to build friendships, support and encourage one another and challenge each other in their walks with God! At Valley Mills Christian Church we offer groups that are home-based, church-based, Bible Study-based, and special interest-based. By joining a Small Group, you can learn more about the Kingdom of God, participate in a fun activity, or find a fun group of people to study God’s Word with. 

There are 3 Types of Small Groups: 

Life Groups typically meet in homes, focus on relationships and growing deeper in Christ as they “Do Life Together”.  
Bible Study Groups typically meet at the church at various times for Bible Study Classes and dive into God’s Word together.  
Special Interest Groups are gatherings of people getting together to engage in hobbies or various activities offering fellowship to those who attend.

Why do I need to be connected to a Small Group?

In a church with an average attendance of 475 most Sundays, people can find it challenging to form close interpersonal relationships with other believers if they do not have similar relational circles. Christian fellowship is an important part of everyone’s walk with Jesus, and we need to surround ourselves with our brothers and sisters in Christ to experience the magnitude of blessings that God has in store for us as we belong to and work within His kingdom.
