One of the main components of this ministry are the weekly cell group meetings: small groups of up to 16 members. Our society grows as each cell group invites and welcomes new members, then divides once the group begins to overflow—similar to our human cells. In this way, the interconnected cells can live the New Evangelization as Pope Benedict XVI defined it: “New evangelization must surrender to the mystery of the grain of mustard seed and not be so pretentious as to believe to immediately produce a large tree.”
Below you will find a list of available cell groups. Some of them are currently under construction. If you don’t see a group that works for you here message Sue and she will let you know of other options.
The Leader - Whitney
Hi! I’m Whitney. I absolutely love meeting new people and creating a welcoming community in which to grow closer to Christ. By day, I’m a Youth Ministry Coordinator for middle and high school students and by night I am a cat & dog mom who loves bringing people together. Our Thaddeus group is welcoming, hilarious, and deeply committed to authenticity, vulnerability, and finding joy. If you’re looking for friends who are encouraging and perfectly imperfect, you’ve found your group.
Work in Progress (no seriously, that’s the name)
