What is a Small Group & Why Should I Join One?

At Rockaway AG, we believe that God created us for Community.
This is why we focus a lot of time and resources in making sure our various small groups are running effectively.
We believe fostering life long relationships matter when it comes navigating life's journey.
Having a community you can rely on is vital to remaining strong in your Christian Faith.

Small Groups are formed seasonally and meet at varying times through out the month.
If you are interested in learning more continue reading below.
Provided are the names, locations and contact information for the small group leaders

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to the group leaders directly
