LOVING PEOPLE INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS TO CHANGE THE WORLD
At Cokesbury, we believe that God designed us to be in community with him, with other Christians, and with the world. For us, Small Groups provide that community. When you commit to being a part of a Small Group, it won’t be long before you realize that life really is better together. New Small Groups are typically formed at the beginning of the calendar year and at the beginning of the school year. Please fill out this form to be notified when new groups are forming.
Teaching groups are usually 10 or more people, led by a facilitator, who gather to learn through Biblically-based study and class discussion. These groups meet during the week or on Sunday.
