HOW SMALL GROUPS WORK
Our small groups meet once a week in places all around our city and provide a place for you to connect, grow, and discuss the issues and challenges of life. Regardless of your age, interest, or location, we are sure there is a group out there for you. Small groups are also where we pray, care for one another, and are missed if we don’t show up! If you would like to join a small group, simply visit our website and check out the online directory of groups or visit the Oakdale Pentecostals via Social Media. We would love for you to get connected.
There are three things you should know about small groups:
1. They are “Free Market” groups.
Our groups are as varied as we are; group leaders use their gifts and passions to create a group that allows others to join with them in serving God. Whatever the age, interest, or location there is a group that is just right for you!
2. We have three semesters every year.
New groups start and stop three times a year – thirteen weeks in the spring, six weeks in the summer, and another thirteen weeks in the fall. Each semester is kicked off with an on-site and online registration period accompanied by a new small group directory.
3. You can host a group.
We believe that everyone has areas of strength and gifting that could benefit others. The first step in becoming a small group leader is to attend the Small Group Leader Training. These classes are offered throughout the year to give you an overview of what it takes to start a group. You’ll discover that it’s easier than you think.
