Home Groups Spring 2017

Home Groups at Wallace PCA are small, informal groups that meet in homes or at the church to study and discuss the Bible, pray, and grow in love for each other. The final meeting of home groups this spring will be Sunday, June 18. Some home groups may not meet that evening because of Father’s Day, so please check with yoru group leader.
Please contact Stephen Coleman about joining a group.

    Ahalt Group meeting at Wallace
Meeting during regular cycles throughout the year (fall, winter, spring), Home Groups provide a warm and intimate sanctuary for dealing with the many pressures and difficulties of living in our Metro area.

They also provide a context for fulfilling our mission as a church by creating an environment in which the Bible, prayer and love abound.

How do Home Groups function at Wallace Presbyterian?

Home Groups are the primary place for pastoral care at Wallace Presbyterian. One might say they serve as the nervous system of our church. In response to God’s grace, people are urged to grow in moral beauty and integrity. As they discover and use their gifts, they carry out ministry both within the congregation and to the world. The Bible presupposes that a significant relational life will exist in the church. Home Groups are our chosen means of cultivating that relational life. Because of their foundational role in the life of our church, we look for a great majority of our church family to be involved in a Home Group. Please prayerfully consider being a part of this vital ministry of Wallace.

We are following the rhythm the Church established from her earliest days by first meeting together for worship and then later meeting in one another’s homes (Acts 2:42-47; 4:23-31; 12:5, 12).

Also, Home Groups are an ideal forum for us to fulfill the numerous biblical commands to care for “one another” (Hebrews 3:12-13; 1 Thessalonians 4:18, 5:11; 1 John 3:16-18).

Home Groups realize our purpose as a church by being:

  • A Place to Study and Discuss the Bible
  • A Place to Pray Together
  • A Place to Grow in Love for One Another
