Small Groups


Small Groups

We are a Small Group driven church.

The purpose of Small Groups is to foster communities that love, follow, and honour Jesus. Small Groups are typically a combination of Bible study, worship, prayer, and fellowship but each group has its own flavour. In Small Groups, we do life together and share where we are encountering Christ, because there is life when we encounter Christ.

Group Name: How I Built This

Leaders: Chris & Stacey VanDewark

Info: This group is for people who currently own a business and want support through prayer and community.

Dates: Mondays (except holidays). Jan 13, 20, 27, Feb 3, 10, 24, Mar 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, Apr 6, 20, 27

Time: 7PM

Location: Central Edmonton

Registration Cost: $0

Maximum number of members: 12 people

Description: This group is inspired by the “How I Built This” podcast.  If you’ve never listened to it, you should. It has been very inspiring for Chris and I in our business journey.  We find it so interesting to hear how ideas turn into reality and all of the ups and downs that come with it.  

In this time where conversation about our economy is so fear based, we wanted to host a group of business owners and hear about how their businesses came to life and the journey it took to get to that point.  As well as to share any needs that need to be met and lift them up in prayer.  

It takes a great deal of faith and courage to follow a dream, so we want to celebrate that and also encourage and pray over each one; creating a space to hear and see where Jesus wants us to go and push forward with NO FEAR!

Kids are allowed if they are old enough to watch a movie in the basement, but we prefer no distractions during the session.
