What are small groups?
Small Groups are a gathering of up to 12 people who come together weekly to grow spiritually, develop meaningful healthy relationships, and experience genuine Christian community. A Small Group is where you can share life experiences and support one another in your day to day lives. It is the heart of TVCC; where you will feel connected with others, discover your God-given talents, and learn how you can contribute to the larger community of TVCC.
Why should I belong to a small group?
Small Groups are not just an idea that TVCC thought up and decided to implement. Small Groups are God’s idea of how He wants us to build relationships and grow spiritually at the most fundamental level. In the early church, we see examples in the Bible of this:
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer… Everyday they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.” Acts 2: 42, 46-47
Small Groups are the best way for you to connect, build meaningful relationships, and get closer to God. These groups provide a support system of traveling companions to share life with on your spiritual journey. Ministry Teams are an opportunity to serve God and to be a part of the changed lives at TVCC.
I’m not a Bible scholar. Will I feel comfortable in a small group?
We think you will. A Small Group is meant to be a loving and caring place where individuals are accepted for who they are, not what they know. You will never be made to feel uncomfortable for not knowing something. We are all growing together, and TVCC’s Small Groups are a safe place to come and learn, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.
As we grow as a church, Small Groups will become even more important in developing community life. If you only came to our Sunday Celebration services and never joined a Small Group, you would miss out on the relational part of what TVCC is designed to be. Join a Small Group and learn what genuine Christian community is all about!
