At Ballardsville Baptist, we believe no one should do life alone because discipleship happens best in relational environments. We all need a safe place to ask questions, be ourselves, love one another, and help one another follow Jesus.
It is essential that you have people in your life who truly know you, love you, and inspire you to be more and more like Jesus. We need one another. We need a place we can bring our friends so they can experience these things too. All of this happens through Home Groups.
Home Groups are small groups of people (typically 8-12) that meet weekly in someone’s home. A typical Home Group gathering would include a meal together, hanging out, and a discussion about the past Sunday’s sermon where you can go deeper into the message – all while developing close friendships with people just like you.
