reach Groups

REACHING TOWARDS EACH OTHER.
REACHING INTO GOD'S WORD.
REACHING OUT TO OUR COMMUNITY.

The first part of our mission is connecting everyone into grace-based relationships. We participate in this mission by gathering in what we call Reach Groups.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, "Two people are better off than one... If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble." It is our heart that every single person at Avalon would be connected to a small community of friends.
