Join a Small Group

Small groups are the heart of our church. We want everyone in the church to join a small group so that you can find community and live with purpose.  Those of us who participate in small groups are learning how to know and love God, how to know/value/listen to/care for/respect/love each other, how to live out our Christian faith (in other words, how to live abundantly), and how to make our city a better place.

Most small groups consist of 5-15 people who gather weekly in each other's homes (or virtually) to pray, apply the Bible or sermon series to our lives, and share life together.

Our small groups meet on a trimester basis. Semester dates for 2021 are:

Spring semester: January 25 - May 2

Summer semester: June 7 - August 1

Fall semester: September 13 - December 12
