How Do I Get To Know People?



Welcome to Foundation!  We are a “Come As You Are” Church and are excited about what God is doing in our church. 

When we think of getting to know people we think of small groups.  Small groups are often the “Second Step” of involvement in our Church.  We see our Sunday Morning Services as our “First Step,” and our Ministry Teams as our “Third Step.”  These three steps are meant to help people develop a “grow, know and show Jesus” lifestyle over time. 
Not everyone will move though these steps in the same order.  For instance, some may connect with us through a Small Group before they join us on Sunday Mornings.  Our small groups are specially-focused on helping you know Jesus with other growing Christians and interested seekers.
We believe that God intends for us to grow and know Him with others who are wanting to grow too.  The word “know” is a rich word; it includes the idea of experiencing Him and responding to His work in our lives.  We believe strongly that we experience God best together!
We believe that all of us are meant to have the Word of God in us and the people of God around us.  Christians who grow in small groups have an advantage because of this!
As you read the New Testament, you will see believers gathering together weekly to share what God was doing in their lives and encouraging one another in their faith (Colossians 3:12-17).  Sunday Mornings are a a big part of our church but they will never be enough for these types of friendships!    
But, if you have never had a chance to attend a small group or a Bible study, don’t worry about how much you know or don’t know!  We are all learners and we don’t expect you to know all the books of the Bible or where to find the story of Mephibosheth (you can let Pastor Wade know when you find it :). 
All of our groups use the Sunday Morning sermon as the starting point for their groups.  We will provide sermon outlines and small group aids that you will be able to take with you to the group that interests you.
Just know, too, that you don’t have to make a long-term commitment when you try-out or sign-on with a group.  Our group “semesters” last for about ten weeks and then they take a break.  We start new groups two or three times a year and if one doesn’t quite meet your needs, there are plenty of others to try!
If you are interested in looking into the specific small groups we are currently offering, don’t hesitate to click our “Foundation’s Small Groups tab,” listed under “Get Connected” above.
If there are any questions we can answer, please let us know.  Feel free to click the “contact us” tab then use the method of communication that best suits you!
