What are Small Groups?

Small groups are leader-led, multigenerational groups that are open to new people being added regularly. Our groups meet weekly to encourage one another and grow in devotion to Jesus. By joining a group, members commit to growing spiritually and to investing in the lives of others in the group. We have different types of groups – mixed, men’s, and women’s – but all include study, prayer, and opportunities to live out their faith together. TO GET MORE INFORMATION OR TO JOIN A GROUP CONTACT THE GROUP’S LEADERS DIRECTLY.

Learning and growing is best done with a group of people. We believe one of the primary ways we are shaped is through living life with groups of other caring individuals. Encounter groups are spaces especially geared for people new to the church or those who want to try a small group experience. These groups are short-term commitments that meet over four weeks at homes in our community. Groups run from the week of April 16-May 7.
