The mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who make a difference in the world. Disciples of Jesus are most effectively formed in small groups of Christians gathered together for fellowship, study and mutual support.

This fall, we will be launching a new SMALL GROUP MINISTRY at Keith Church that we hope will involve as many people in our congregation as possible so we may grow in our discipleship together.


Groups will meet each week for approximately an hour. There is something for everyone, and for every schedule. We’ll even provide child care*. Different groups will meet at different times and at different locations; however, all groups will be doing the same three things …

SHARE. Being a part of a small group allows each of us to share events, joys, concerns and day-to-day happenings with a community of people who do not have everything in common, but share a common desire to grow their faith and discipleship.

SUPPORT. By meeting regularly and sharing with one another, we’ll find and provide support through listening, encouragement and prayer. Honesty and grace are priorities in our small groups.

STUDY. Each week we’ll study a portion of the scriptures that relates to the previous Sunday’s sermons. Our sermon series this fall, “This Is Us,” will be drawn from the stories of family relationships in Genesis. We will explore these stories more in depth together and discuss how their lessons apply in our own everyday lives and families. There is NO homework.

If there is a Small Group that meets at a time or location that works best for you, please use
