In the beginning of his book, Why Small Groups?, C.J. Mahaney makes a bold statement:
"A church following a biblical model will not just have small groups. It will not merely "offer" small groups. Rather, it will be built with small groups."
It is our desire that every member and regular attender participate in the Grace Growth Groups. Through these small, intimate settings we will be given opportunities to learn, grow, and invest in each other’s lives. Our prayer is that through this ministry God’s grace will impact us inwardly through life application and outwardly through gospel proclamation.
Grace Growth Groups (3G Network) are small groups scattered throughout Cape Coral and the surrounding cities where the Grace family gathers to study God’s Word and fellowship together. The 3G Network reflects how the church is scattered throughout the region to reach into each others lives through genuine sharing and reach out through hospitality and the loving embrace of neighbors, friends, and coworkers.
Our groups are currently meeting at 6PM on all but the last Sunday of the month.
Join us in February and March as our 3G (home groups) ministry begins for 2015. During these months we will be reading together the book Church Membership by Johnathan Leeman. Books for the study will be provided at the first meeting.
Our pastors and elders will be leading the books study, so note that a couple of groups will be combining for the months of February and March:
