small groups

We live in a culture where sharing life together can sometimes be reduced to status updates or a quick “hello” in the grocery store aisle. Though our modern world enables us to connect with others both in our local community and on the other side of the world, the human heart is wired for real, tangible relationship. We long for true community. God calls us to true community.


So how does a church of hundreds provide care for its individual members? How does a large congregation find intimate fellowship? How can we dialogue with others and apply God’s truth in personal and practical ways? Where can we find a safe place for honest sharing, Gospel encouragement, and needful accountability?

Small groups were created with these needs in mind.


What should I expect?

Small groups are gatherings of approximately 8 to 12 people that meet at various times during the month in people’s homes as well as on the church campus. The topics and format vary by group. Typically a leader facilitates a discussion from a current sermon series or a topic of interest to the group. Most groups meet for 8-10 weeks and gather either weekly or bi-weekly. Many of our groups also enjoy occasions to get together for meals or a day at the lake.


Is childcare provided?

All Sunday evening groups have child care provided at the church during the school year. We are passionate about caring for children and supporting families. As a church, we have also taken vows to assist parents in the challenging work of caring for and training up the children in our midst. Free childcare on Sunday evenings — in the form of nursery for the youngest children and enriching programming for the older children — is provided at the church. Additionally, our middle school youth program meets during the same time as the Sunday evening Small Groups.
