Small Christian Communities

Small Christian Communities are groups that gather regularly to share their faith, help each other in their Christian way through daily life, relate Scripture to the world around them, and reach out in service to others. At meetings they share the next Sunday’s Scripture readings and relate these to their present-day lives. If interested in joining a Small Christian Community please contact us.
