Because God designed us to know and be known by others, FOCUS groups will intentionally connect people to Christ and his church through small groups of 6-14 people for Fellowship, Outreach, Care, the Utilization of gifts and Spiritual growth.  

John 13:34-35,
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
