The congregation at West End is divided into eight fellowship groups or mini-congregations, each with 75 to 90 people of all ages, as cross-sections of the make-up of our congregation. Each group, under the leadership of an elder, a deacon, and a coordinator works at creating a family atmosphere where everyone is accepted, cared for, and encouraged – in one word: loved. Social gatherings help people to get to know each other better, Bible studies help them grow in their faith, and acts of service help the members express their Christian love by meeting special needs in the group, in the congregation, or in the community.
Contact the church office if you would like more information about the fellowship groups.
