There are many ways to connect at Park Church! One of our favorite ways to build relationships is through small groups. Some are interest-based groups, others center around service projects, others still around study & faith formation. Two most important things about all of them: (1) There is always room for YOU! No experience is needed to join, just a desire to connect with others. (2) There is always room for MORE groups! If you have an idea for a new small group, contact Pastor Bethany.
Meal @ 5p. Small Groups @ 5.45
Throughout the year, small group offerings vary. Sometimes we will have one large lesson before breaking into small groups for discussion. Other seasons, multiple small group topics will be offered. Either way - Wednesday GIFT is an opportunity for people of all ages to connect with each other and grow in faith!
There is always staffed nursery care for our littlest members (0-5) and learning opportunities for our kids, confirmands, high schoolers, and adults.
This is a great introduction to small groups and a wonderful way to get connected with us at Park Church. Whether you're a member, guest, or friend - we hope you'll join us!
