HOW DO I JOIN A CELL GROUP?
Step 1: If you’re new to groups at Saylorville, plan to attend our next Group Connect event. Group Connect is a one-hour orientation that will kick-start your Cell Group journey with people just like you who are looking to belong at Saylorville Church.
Step 2: Check out all the available groups, and use the custom filters to see the groups that will work for you. Contact one of our Cell Group Leaders or church staff if you would like help walking through the process.
CAN I VISIT A CELL GROUP BEFORE JOINING?
We ask that everybody attends Group Connect before joining a Cell Group at Saylorville. Make plans to attend Group Connect before, or soon after, visiting a group for the first time. Group Connect meets monthly throughout the school year, so you’ll never have to wait more than a few weeks before the next one comes around.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN A CELL GROUP?
Growing spiritually doesn’t just happen when we know what Jesus says. It happens when we apply what he says. This happens best in the context of community. To grow spiritually, you have to be connected relationally. Cell Groups provide environments where you experience life change together with others on the journey of becoming more like Jesus.
WHAT IS A CELL GROUP?
– Consists of 8-14 adults and their children
– Led by trained volunteer leaders who are training other volunteer leaders
– Meets regularly in homes or in the community

WHAT DO CELL GROUPS DO?
Acts 2:42-47 – And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
2 Corinthians 3:18 – And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
Acts 16:5 – So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and they increased in numbers daily.
