Small Groups

Our hope is that Waters Church would be a community of friends engaged in gospel-centered relationships resembling the early church (Acts 2:42). Small Groups are the best opportunity we have for that. Therefore we believe active participation in a small group is critical for your spiritual health as a part of the local church.
