Small Christian Communities

These are small groups of people who gather regularly in homes to reflect on the Sunday scriptures, share faith, and connect everyday life with their faith. You have the option of seasonal groups or ongoing groups. 

All of the meetings include prayer in various forms and may include other activities such as bible study, reflection, meditation and journaling. Members are invited to share their life experiences, feelings, views and faith; however, some members may simply listen if they choose. Some groups offer programs that resemble "mini retreats," and some groups perform community service, such as preparing meals for the Bishop Ott Shelter.

The schedule and content of the meetings is a decision of the group itself. There are no rules for SCC's but there is guidance and initial training from members of the parish's SCC Core Team to help new groups get started. Each group is connected to the the Parish through a representative of the group who serves as the Pastoral Contact (PC). PCs from different groups and the SCC Core Team meet to share resources to help support the SCCs.
Commitment: determined by group
