Merge Groups

Merge Group noun - /mərj ɡro͞op/
an intentional gathering of a small group of people, meeting regularly for the purpose of loving God and loving others.

Small groups are an essential extension of our Christian experience. Attending a weekly church service is important but it shouldn't be your only interaction with other believers or with God during the week.  Our Merge Groups offer opportunity to dive deeper into our bible and study Gods word in a more intimate setting with the added benefits of friendship, support, encouragement and a safe space to explore your questions about God and about faith.

As we anticipate Easter week this year, we can take time to focus on the 40 days of lent leading up to Easter Sunday. This will prepare you as we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus  but also help you answer some of the biggest questions around this holiday.

The most important questions anyone can ask are:
Why was Jesus Christ crucified?
Why did he suffer so much?
What has this to do with me?
Finally, who sent him to his death?

The answer to the last question is that God did. Jesus was God’s Son. The suffering was unsurpassed, but the whole message of the Bible leads to this answer. The central issue of Jesus’s death is not the cause, but the meaning — God’s meaning. The devotional below, written by John Piper, has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons in answer to this question: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?
