Randolph Street exists to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, community, service and multiplication. Central to this mission is our Gathering and After-Gathering each Sunday morning. Our hearts are bound together as we worship our great God through the reading and proclamation of the Scriptures, through singing, confessing our faith, and fellowship. We recognize that God has ordained the church, as a gospel-centered community, to be the primary context for discipleship. With this in mind, it is our desire to develop an effective small group ministry that will help Randolph Street live out gospel-centered community.
The purpose of our small group ministry is to give a format for families and individuals to meet during the week for fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, and the study of God’s Word. It is our aim to have groups that will fit every person’s schedule, and groups that will help each person grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. With this in mind, it is our goal to provide two types of small groups to serve the needs of Randolph Street.
Long-term Small Groups (LTSG)
These small groups will resemble the traditional small group ministry. LTSG will form based on relationships, geography, etc. and will meet in someone’s home or at one of our campus locations. LTSG are designed to help our folks develop strong, meaningful and ongoing relationships that will edify and encourage one another in the faith. These relationships allow us to understand and engage in the genuine burdens and battles that our brothers and sisters face, and will speak truth into one another’s lives.
Short-term Small Groups (STSG)
STSG are focussed on specific needs, gender groups, age groups, etc. These groups typically meet for a specified period of time. An example might be a small group of men meeting to work through a specific theological topic, or a group of young moms meeting for 8-12 weeks to work through a book on parenting toddlers. In the future, as a part of our STSG we will be developing Recovery Groups.
