MAY ADDITION SG's


Due to 'physical distancing' it's vitally important that we stay CONNECTED SOCIALLY....Thats why we are ADDING a 4 week 'MAY ADDITION' small Group semester.


We want our whole church family to join a group and interact with others- We believe 'LIFE CHANGE HAPPENS IN THE CONTEXT OF RELATIONSHIPS...'


We will be ALL discussing the same topic/ subject together- The Sunday Messages. It's amazing how we can discover so many truths that can help us in our daily lives. Have questions...we have the answers...Through God's Word.


That means you NEED to GET IN A GROUP-

MORE ON MAY ADDITION SG's...

What small groups offer:


1. A Place to CONNECT


‘Yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so that he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him.’

                1 Corinthians 9:22(TLB)


We were never made to do life alone. God created us for community, and small groups provide a place to connect with others, share life, and grow in faith together.


2. A Place to PROTECT


‘We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.’

         I John 3:16 (NLT)


It is through life together that our problems become smaller, and God uses others to bring the support and encouragement we need to our lives. Small groups become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what’s happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.


3. A Place to GROW


As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.’

                Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)


We believe every person is created with God-given potential to make a difference in the world. Small groups are a place you can grow with others to become more like Jesus and reach the potential God has put inside of you.



What our MAY ADDITION SG looks like


At Encounter Church our usual way we meet in groups is FREE MARKET.  This means that we gather in areas that based on interests and needs...HOWEVER during the 'MAY ADDITION' we are going to meet in a different manner due to social distancing restrictions, and therefore meet online via ZOOM.


We will NOT have different topics, subjects and activities during this MAY ADDITION- but will all study the same topic. We will be discussing a breaking down the 'Sunday message' looking to bring it alive into our daily lives. God's Word MUST be walked out in our lives.

Due to the fact ALL groups in MAY ADDITION will be online ONLY...There will be no child care provided.


Is there a cost to attend groups?


There is NO cost to be a part of the MAY ADDITION Semester. You will just need to download the free ZOOM app to be a part.


Do I have to be a member of Encounter Church to attend a small group?


Certainly NOT. ALL are welcome to attend one of our scheduled groups. We are excited to involve anyone not currently a member of our church.


Can I jump in at anytime during the semester?


Yes you can, however since this is just a month long (4 week) semester we recommend that you get signed up as soon as possible. Each week we will be discussing the 'Sunday Message' so you will not miss materials if you miss a week etc.


What if I miss a week?


Come the next week. This is why we have our small groups meet weekly so that people are not disconnected for more than one week.



We are so excited to have you as part of an awesome family! Get connected and get the most out of your church, life and future.


We believe life change happens in the context of RELATIONSHIPS.
