Why join a small group?
At Springs Community Church, we believe that everyone benefits from being in community—the larger community that meets on Sunday and the smaller community which meets at other times and involves a group of people with whom you build far deeper relationships. Small Groups exist to inspire people to participate in an intentional process of transformation; developing a Christ-like character. Transformation is the end we seek.
This is the way that God created us. Transformation at Springs Community Church (SCC) occurs when people become connected to a biblical community and purposefully follow a process that leads them to becoming more and more like Jesus Christ. These communities are what we call a Small Group.
We believe that this transformation occurs most effectively in a small group setting.If you've gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends.
Phil 2:1-2 (The Message
) The purpose of small groups is to provide the place and opportunity for these deep relationships. An ideal Small Group consists of 3 to 12 people connecting on a regular basis for the purpose of Holy Spirit energized spiritual formation. They embrace a common creed that is biblical and practical. They have traditions that ensure that the Christian way of life is being passed down to the next generation. They openly and freely commit to being accountable to all of those with whom they are in community. They live by standards that are characteristic of Christian living and that flow from the Scriptures.
If you are not in a small group, we believe you are missing out on much of what God has in store for you.
