Small Groups & Fellowship Groups

Small Groups

Join a small groupSmall groups are the foundation of life-long discipleship, providing both space and defined community in which intentional relationships can flourish. Here at Foundry, our commitment is that these covenant communities embody four major and regular movements:

Fellowship: Opportunities for play, fun, and connection with people who share similar commitments, experiences, and stories.

Theological Reflection: Space to reflect critically and carefully about the way one’s life experiences are shaped by our shared faith, and the ways in which our shared faith (does and should) inform our life experience.

Prayer: The space to pray for and with one another, as well as to learn alongside one another how to pray.

Service: Opportunities for a community (in a variety of fashions) to put into action the shared values/commitments of the covenant community.
