We believe personal growth happens in community. Strat Groups (small groups) at Stratford are aligned with our mission.

EMBRACE GOD; Our small group meetings invite the presence of the Lord through prayer and studying the word together.

CONNECT WITH ONE ANOTHER; Our small groups provide a place to make close and meaningful friendships. We learn in community we are not alone!

PURSUE GROWTH; Our small groups, through the lesson and discussion, learn how to apply the Word to our everyday lives. We also grow spiritually by learning from others experiences and insights.

SERVE THE WORLD; Our small groups like to get involved in serving our church & community. We learn that our mission is about fulfilling the Great Commission.

It’s easy to get involved in a small group! Check-out the list of small groups available and email the leader of the one you are interested in. The small group leader will get back with you about when the next group meets and where.

If you are interested in starting a small group, please email Pastor Melissa Graw at melissagraw@gmail.com
