D-Groups are small groups of about 6 members desiring a deeper connection to God's word. These groups are committed for one year to the following activities: Read 5 pre-selected chapters of scripture per week and journal your thoughts. Memorize 1 verse per week. Meet with your group one hour per week to share how God is speaking to you through your reading and journaling.
At the end of the year prayerfully consider leading a new group of disciples.
God loves kids! As followers of Jesus we take that fact very seriously in the way we approach our Ministry at Chestnut Ridge Church.
We see each child as a person, not just part of the crowd, and we believe each person is a vital part of the church no matter their age or ability.
It is our goal in KidzTown to help you as you disciple your children. We are here to assist in the construction of a solid Biblical foundation for every person's faith. Whether you bring your family on Sunday morning or Wednesday night you can be sure that the programs we have in place are designed to teach Biblical truth in a lasting way.
