Welcome to Small Groups

Gathering in small groups is a way to grow your personal community with whom you can grow in faith.  This will be especially helpful during this challenging time.  We are asking for a short term commitment so that people can dip their toes into trying a small group.  Small Groups will begin in early January and run for 6 weeks.   Please read the information below to see what each group is offering and where you might best connect with others in the same phase of life.  Please use the contact email provide with each group to reach out for zoom links or more information.  If you have any question, please contact the office admin at ruralchapel@ruralchapel.org
