Small groups are intentional groups of people who meet regularly to support and encourage growth in their faith journey. These gatherings of 6 -12 people provide the ideal format for fulfilling the biblical "one anothers" - love one another, pray for one another, bear one another's burden. We see the small group ministry as vital to the health of individual believers and the church as a whole.
When and Where Do Small Groups Meet?
They gather once or twice a month for friendship, support, prayer, Bible study, and service. Ordinarily, small groups meet in the homes of our members on various nights of the week.
Small Groups are a priority at DCF because they:
Stimulate Spiritual Growth
Provide Support and Encouragement
Decentralize Care-Giving within the Church
Remind Us that Church is People, Not a Building
Supply a Regular Forum for Prayer
Assimilate Newcomers into the Body Life of the Church
