START A GROUP
START A GROUP WITH A FEW FRIENDS
In the second part of Acts 2:46 we see that while they were gathering in big groups in the temple courts, they were also meeting in smaller settings regularly! They were doing life together; eating, sharing, helping, and having those close spiritual friendships with one another. The same is true for us at Hillcrest Church. We believe that to CONNECT SMALL is just as important as CELEBRATE BIG. The primary place where we connect small is a LIFEGROUP - a place where someone notices your spiritual growth and cares when a tough thing happens to you. When we CONNECT SMALL, it is all about authentic relationships - unpacking your walk with Jesus, how the sermons or worship are affecting you, and trusting others will share the same with you.
