DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS
Building Community for Life Change

You can build authentic friendships with others and grow together in healthy small groups at MC4. These groups:

• Are the best place for life-change

• Include all kinds of people (we have inter-generational groups as well as groups for children, youth, young adults,
singles, married couples, men, women, etc.)

• Focus on a large range of interests (e.g., spirituality, a book of the Bible, healthy marriages, and effective parenting)

• Gather in many different locations, meet on various days of the week, and at different times of the day 

You Can Participate in a Discipleship Group
You can find a small group that fits by visiting a group or two and then making a choice! To visit a group, simply contact
the group leader. All groups are listed below.

food plan that eliminates foods created by man and concentrates on the foods God made. In doing so, you can reprogram your
palate as well as lose weight.
     With Whole-30:

     - No eating foods you hate
We will be combining teaching from God's word with handy tips on navigating this adventure. Come join us!
