And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

hebrews 10:24-25

context for discipleship

The vision of theAlley’s small groups ministry is to make disciples by connecting people to each other and to the Lord through fellowship, prayer and Bible study. The goal is that every adult who desires to be in a small group will have that opportunity. Small groups can be one-to-one, a group of 3 or larger. They can be same gender or both gender.


One of the ways we live out discipleship at theAlley is through Small Groups and Recovery Groups. We believe Small Groups and Recovery Groups are a powerful context where discipleship happens.

Patty Ohmann | Small Groups Coordinator









small groups

Made up of men and women from all generations of life, these groups meet throughout the week for fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, sharing stories and studying God’s Word. They’re a place where we work to consider each other over ourselves. No group is perfect, and no two groups are exactly the same. We don’t expect them to be. Because people are messy, groups are messy.


GROUP CONNECT


Throughout the year, we host an event which will help you connect into a group. The hope is to connect you into a Small Group where you can find a place to be discipled and make disciples. This event will give you the opportunity to meet different Small Group leaders and to sign up for a Small Group in your area. You can check out the events page for when it is scheduled.


LEAD A GROUP

If you are interested in leading a Home Group or Recovery Group, we encourage you to contact Patty Ohmann the Small Groups Coordinator.
