Small Group Ministry at Wellington Square

Here at Wellington Square we want to support and encourage life-long learning and growth in discipleship. We believe that Small Group Ministry is an excellent way for adults to learn more about the Bible, come to terms with the challenges of living as Christ-followers, and to deepen our relationships with God.

Join one of our Small Groups

If you are not currently connected with a Small Group via ZOOM and would like to be, please contact our Director of Adult Faith Ministry, Joy Magwood.

Small Groups Mission

Our Vision

To have every person connected in a healthy Small Group.

 

Our Mission

To live out the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20)

There are many avenues to explore in seeking a relationship with God: learning on your own (Bible reading, online, movies, and DVDs), in large groups (courses, speakers, workshops, retreats, conferences) in our congregation (Sunday worship, church events, mission activities) and in our small groups (bible study, mission/prayer and support groups) — all of which offer opportunities to connect into our community of faith and grow in your relationship with Jesus. Blessings on your journey.
