Small Groups Get Connected!

From its earliest days the Church has been getting together in a public place for corporate worship. Since those first days of Christianity these worshipers have met in smaller groups going from house to house sharing testimonies of God’s goodness, singing praise, praying and breaking bread together thus building a strong sense of community. These small groups, life groups, cell groups, community groups, or classes…whatever you call them, were and still are the the place to develop Christ centered relationships and community with other Christians in similar stages and walks in life. Boca Glades recognizes this as an important aspect of Church life. As a result, we are dedicated to promoting small groups that meet in a variety of settings and a variety of times. Below is a list of our current small group meetings. Please note that we generally group our adult classes by age and the ages of their children in order to easily organize get togethers. However these are only suggestions, please attend the group of your choice and enjoy God’s people!
