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!

Josiane-500x500

Josiane Niragire

Josiane Niragire is 24 years old and married with two children. She is the youngest of six children. Josiane attended school until Senior 4, when she left school to have her first child. Josiane’s mother passed away when she was very young, and this left the family in deep poverty. They often slept without dinner. This led Josiane to move to Kigali when she was old enough to work. She met and married her husband in Kigali. Today, he is unemployed. Her plan is to look for a job after mastering her sewing skills, so she can make a better life for herself.
