Life Groups


Most likely you are wondering why we have chosen Synapse for our small group ministry. The word comes from two words meaning to clasp together. Very simply put, the Synapses are the connections between the brain and the body. With receptors and transmitters they connect the idea in the brain to the function in the body that needs to be accomplished.

The average 3 year old is said to have about 1000 trillion of these. As adults the number drops to anywhere from 100-500 trillion. The movement of the information across the gap is called firing.

Simply put, Synapse brings together two things: what we know and what we do. It is the marriage of our knowledge and our actions. It is the clasping together of one person to another in love. It is the connecting of what we read in the Word with what we do in our lives.

Synapse Groups form at periodic times and meet as a group for 12-24 months. You can find out more about groups that are forming in the church publications.
