SMALL GROUP MINISTRY @LEWINSVILLE
What is a ChristCare Group?
A ChristCare Group is a gathering of about 4-12 people that meets regularly for an agreed upon season of time to deepen fellowship with one another and with Jesus Christ. When ChristCare groups meet, they participate in:
- mutual care and encouragement
- relating the Bible to daily life
- prayer and worship, and
- service and outreach to others.
A trained leader who receives ongoing support for this ministry leads the ChristCare Group. The group decides together the focus of its Biblical study and the nature of its service or outreach.
ChristCare Groups Build Community
In a world where people often feel isolated, there is a strong need to have a place where you are known, where you have family. In ChristCare Groups, people develop trust, love, and acceptance, and are able to share joys and struggles. New members find a place to connect, and longtime members find a place for continued growth. And remember that much of Jesus’ most significant ministry took place with the small group he formed at the beginning of his ministry — the twelve disciples.
