Drawing closer to God, together.

This spring we are breaking out of our typical assigned small group format to create a more casual environment, designed to help us expand our faith and grow our personal connections.

Encounter: Experiences that draw us closer to God and to others.


During this 5 week session, we will explore fives experiences that help us draw closer to God and to others. Each week we’ll gather on Tuesdays with time to connect to others, time to learn from others, time to experience with others, and time to share our own stories. Then, during the week, we will spend guided time on our own, encountering God through scripture in ways that complement our weekly gatherings.

Join us as we encounter God together in community!

Dative-1500x1500

Dative Mishyimimana

Dative is 26 years old and unmarried. She attended school into fifth grade, and later dropped out because her family could not afford to pay the exam fees. Her father passed away two years ago, leaving behind Dative and her three siblings. Dative now works as a maid, attends church, and lives with a friend while taking the program, but her employer does not support her in the class and threatens to fire her. She hopes to find a better job after graduation to support her siblings.
Grace-1500x1500

Grace Murekatete

Grace is 19 years old and is not married. Her parents passed away when she was too young to know them, and so she was raised by her grandmother. Her grandmother was able to put her through school until fourth grade, but after that she had to drop out because it was too expensive. Grace later moved to Kigali to look for a job, and now works as a housemaid. Her goal after this completing the sewing program is to work and start up her own sewing school benefiting other women.
