Small groups at Home Street Mennonite Church are open to everyone! They foster deeper friendships, spiritual growth, and a place to belong. They are a great place to care for others and be cared for, a place to share our joys and concerns. They are a place to learn and to grow.
Home Street offers a variety of small group experiences. Every fall we announce new groups and study topics as well as continuing older groups. Groups include book studies, supper groups, seniors gatherings, Bible studies, a prayer group, and a parents group. Please see below for current small group opportunities.
