small groups

Small groups were created to help you find a safe place for catching up, honest sharing, gospel encouragement, and needful accountability. 

What do small groups look like? 

Small groups are gatherings of approximately 8 to 12 people that meet at various times and in various places. The topics and format vary by group. Some of our groups are gender specific, others consist of men and women. Some groups are designed for young adults, while others are made up of young adults and their families. A leader typically 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.

What about childcare?

Childcare will not be provided at the church, but will be provided wherever your group meets. Contact your small group leader to inquire about childcare.

How do I get involved?

Just sign up below and your leader will be in touch with you.
