Jun 26, 2019


Welcome to Forward Church's Small Groups page! If you're looking to connect with like-minded individuals, experience spiritual growth, and build lasting relationships with fellow believers, you've come to the right place. Our small groups provide a space where individuals can come together, share their faith journey, and support one another through life's ups and downs.

The Power of Community

In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to feel isolated and disconnected. At Forward Church, we believe that community is essential for our spiritual well-being. Our small groups offer a unique opportunity to foster genuine connections with others who share similar beliefs and values. Through regular gatherings, group discussions, and shared activities, our small groups provide a foundation for deep and meaningful relationships.

Benefits of Joining a Small Group

Joining a small group at Forward Church offers a multitude of benefits for individuals seeking personal and spiritual growth:

1. Belonging and Support

A small group provides a supportive environment where you can belong, be heard, and experience genuine care from fellow group members. Whether you're facing a challenging situation or celebrating a triumph, your small group becomes your extended family, offering encouragement and support every step of the way.

2. Spiritual Growth and Learning

Engaging in regular Bible studies, discussions, and shared experiences within a small group setting facilitates spiritual growth and learning. Together, we explore the teachings of the Bible, delve deeper into our faith, and encourage one another in our spiritual journeys.

3. Accountability and Challenge

Small groups provide a safe space for accountability and personal growth. As group members, we challenge and inspire one another to live out our faith, set goals, and walk in alignment with God's principles. Through open and honest conversations, we empower each other to overcome obstacles and become the best versions of ourselves.

4. Prayer and Intercession

Prayer is a powerful tool that connects believers to God's heart. In small groups, we come together in prayer, interceding for one another, our community, and the world. The collective power of group prayer strengthens our faith, encourages miracles, and brings about lasting transformation.
