Connection is something just about all of us need and desire. You might even say we were made for it. And here at Ridge we believe that real, meaningful growth in our lives happens best in the context of a small group of people. Think about it - who do you know best? Chances are good you haven’t built your most meaningful relationships in big rooms with tons of people staring at a presentation. More than likely your most influential relationships were formed in small circles of people connected in some way to some stage of your life.
At Ridge we believe in the power of small groups - so we offer all kinds of groups, each with a different focus or purpose. Community Groups are available for married or single adults that choose to meet together in homes each week. The focus in community groups is just that - community. Community groups often share a meal together, read the Bible together, and stay up-to-date on what’s new. And at different times throughout the year we also offer Connection Groups, which focus on key aspects of life such as how we handle our money, how to be a better mom or wife, and even where to start with the idea of faith.
In short, we’re passionate about people connecting in groups because we’re convinced sustained life-change happens in the context of community. Everyone needs or will need someone the can laugh or cry with at some point in their life, and small groups provide a safe place to ask difficult questions and share in the real burdens of life.
At Ridge Church, small groups aren’t just something we want to do - we believe they’re essential!
