God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble
REFUGE groups are small group gatherings of 6 to 10 people. Our vision for discipleship groups is that you might find meaningful relationships with people who will come alongside you as you grow in knowing God and learning to serve him.
We encourage you to be involved through either hosting a small group in your home or facilitating a small group by leading people together in someone's home. Rather than these groups just becoming another bible study, the groups focus upon four biblical activities; discussions from Sunday sermons (teaching), spending time together serving others, prayer, and sharing in the Lord's supper or meals together (Acts 2:42).
Wednesday Night Schedule - We encourage the majority of small groups to meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to approx. an hour and a half in length. Rather than focusing on a midweek church service we believe that effective discipleship occurs through a consistent schedule of smaller groups which are sharing life and serving together.
Southshore Men's Breakfast - The 2nd Saturday of the month at 8:30am in Metairie.
North shore Men's Breakfast - The 1st Saturday of the month at 8:30am located at various men's homes.
Ladies Fellowship on the Southshore - The last Wednesday of the month at the Woodlawn Sanctuary from 6-8pm. Sometimes the ladies group meets on the fourth Wednesday or the fifth Wednesday depending on the month.
Ladies Fellowship on the Northshore - Every Tuesday afternoon.
Leadership Rally - Last three meetings for 2017 are scheduled for Friday night Sept 22nd, October 22th, and November 17th. The September 22nd meeting will meet at 6:30pm at 2315 N. Woodlawn Ave. Though this particular group involves a specific 10 people from our church, individuals are able to sit in on our leadership gatherings by request. You may call 504-858-8288 for more information.
