A phrase you'll often hear us say at Frontline is, "Programs seldom change people. People often change people." This is especially true when it comes to our spiritual growth. We believe people grow deeper in their faith journey because of other people.
This is why small groups exist: To grow deeper with people. We believe small groups offer a perfect opportunity for people to grow together and engage in conversation about following Jesus in meaningful and practical ways.
Here at Frontline, small groups follow a three-semester schedule each year:
Fall: 8 weeks long from October - November.
Winter: 8 weeks long from February - March.
Summer: 4 weeks long from June - July.
