Groups & Education

Small groups are where intimate relationships between brothers and sisters in Christ are created and nurtured. St. John encourages all of its members to have active small group and educational lives.

Small Groups

Small groups have 4 to 10 members, and participants can decide when, where, and for how long they meet. Group meetings have three components: sharing, Bible study and application, and prayer. The LCMC Guide for Missional Accountability Groups is a useful resource.
