Small Groups

Community begins when we get out of rows and into circles.  Any group at M1 is a great way to enter real community. The foundations of our groups model are fellowship, discipleship, and finding a third place. We believe that the community fostered in these groups will make a dynamic impact in Magnolia for Christ. You can join an open small group (found below) or grab a few friends and start your community group today!
Below is a list of all of our groups and some basic contact information.

What is an M1 Group?

At its core, a small group is simply a group of people who have Christ's Holy Spirit inside of them. This group is able to spend enough time together that they have relationships with one another and spend enough time with Jesus to have a relationship with Him. The essence of small groups is not much more complex than that! The temptation is to initially try and wrap a lot of other parameters around it: recommending the maximum number of people who can be in a group, establishing what the group agenda is, writing leadership criteria, determining the optimal frequency of small group gatherings, building a leader support/coaching structure, etc. These criteria are very useful to helping a small group ministry grow and sustain spiritual health, but until you can embrace the simplicity of the early church pattern that a small group is people in relationship to God and to one another, then there will always be confusion about the nature of small groups.
A wonderful summary statement for the process of community in a small group is this: "I regularly share my life stories with you. You regularly share your life stories with me. Together we will look at the life story of Jesus Christ as it is told in God's Word, and over time, our life stories begin to look and sound a lot more like Jesus' life story."
