Small Groups

Can you imagine being part of a church home where almost every single person is in a loving circle of friends with a trained leader that provides nurture and care? Where the communities of believers really do love deeply and forgive deeply and open their faults and problems up to each other and hold each other accountable? Wouldn't that be something?

At River of Life, small groups are great places to connect and to grow. As a matter of fact, you are a little out of step if you're not in one! For the past few years, over 85% of all regular attendees have been connected to a group of some kind.

What does a typical cell group meeting look like? It is modeled after Acts 2 so it will usually include a study, fellowship, food, and prayer. As groups do life together, they often are involved in service projects, outreach events, and celebrating milestones such as the births of babies and baptisms.

If you are new to our church or have never experienced group life, you can attend one or more to help you in the exploration process. The best way to begin is to contact our Lead Pastor, Carter MacFarlane, at 651-483-1970 or by e-mail:, and he will help you find a group that is right for you.
