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."
Through the last several years, the Grace leadership became convinced that developing small groups was crucial to the health and growth of Grace Baptist Church. The goal of these small groups is to strengthen community, discover spiritual gifts, develop leaders, apply Biblical truth, and influence the neighboring world around us through living life together.
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.
