FIND A GROUP FOR YOU

There is a place for you here!

Groups are an easy place to belong and meet lifelong friends

 

Why Groups?

In the New Testament, the early church gathered as a larger group at the temple courts. They expereinced the power of God's presence as the all worshiped together on the Lord's Day.  During the week they also met in small groups in their homes. 

Groups Support

It was in these smaller groups that Believers supported each other through the ups and downs of life, and enjoyed incredible, powerful, and intimate community.  The early church met each others needs, so we meet the needs of each other in a small group.

 

It is in a small group where you best learn how to follow Jesus' teaching and example.  As a result, people experience remarkable spiritual and personal growth. 

Groups Spread

Small groups are so fulfilling that they regularly reach out to others, showing them the love of Jesus and invite them to become a part of the group.  

 

The young and the old met together in the early church, so groups can include all ages and backgrounds. 

 

These are some reasons why small groups are the primary means of discipleship and community at OFN.Church.  Here you are known and loved, and here you get to know and love others. 

Groups Are Specific

There are 3 specific types of small groups described below.   LIFE groups are the most common groups and most people want to be a part of one of these.  The other two groups are also enriching but meet for a short period of time and for a specific purpose. 

Invest in Yourself!

A small group is worth your time because when combined with Sunday worship, you feel loved, cared for, and grow to become the person God designed you to be!

 

Since small groups are now rebooting at OFN.Church, this is an excellent time to get in on the ground floor. 

 

Check out the small groups below and let us know of your interest.
