Small Groups


At Providence, we treasure the times that we spend together as a body on Sundays worshiping our Heavenly Father, but church is not just a Sunday event. We value the more intimate connections of fellowship and accountability in small groups. It is for this reason that we have Small Groups. Small Groups meet in homes, coffee shops, and restaurants. These groups are crucial for people to grow in their walk with the Lord in community. Small Groups focus on studying the Scriptures, living in relationship and spending time in prayer so we impact our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please take a moment and look at the groups that are currently available. Life in community is a beautiful thing.

If you are looking to find out more about our Small Groups or would like more information on how to get connected, email our Small Group Director Emanuele Madanat ( ).

Men's Pure Desire Group

Wednesday, 7:00pm - 8:00pm | 430 Hannum Ave West Chester PA 19382

Pure Desire exists to provide hope and freedom from sexual addiction by educating and equipping church leaders in the development of a healing ministry. Through small group resources for men, women, and teens, on-site or online counseling, training events, and ministry partnerships, Pure Desire is leading the way in the battle for integrity and purity in the church. 

We understand the effects of sexual addiction can poison an individual's entire life, and we desire to walk in the holiness that comes from God. Join us Monday mornings as we go through the Pure Desire curriculum through videos and discussion. 

Email  to join. 

Note: we realize that sexual addiction is not a sin exclusive to men, and we have plans to start a support group for women dealing with this addiction in the future.
