Small Groups at Embrace Church are about
BELONGING and BECOMING.
We are all uniquely formed with a deep need for BELONGING in community, to have genuine and honest relationships where we can be fully known and fully loved. And as followers of Jesus we also have the calling of BECOMING like him, for our lives to continually be shaped into his likeness through Scripture, the Holy Spirit, prayer and Christian community. For Embrace Church, we see Small Groups as a vehicle for cultivating relationships in our lives where we can experience this kind of belonging and becoming.
