A church through small groups, not with small groups...
We believe discipleship is meant to happen through relationship to Jesus and one another (John 13:34-35). This makes gathering in small group communities throughout the month a top priority for our community; making Sundays a celebration of our connections throughout the week!
Each season (Sep-May) members of our congregation step up to lead a small group focused on something they're passionate about. There's often still room for more in our groups, so please don't hesitate to reach out. You can hover over a title to find a "contact" for each small group. Just drop them a note to get more info.
