Small Groups

Your faith is not a an independent study.  Take a moment to review several small group options and join one that fits your schedule, your area, or your season in life.

Small groups are a great way to share life.  Each group is a welcoming, Christ-centered atmosphere.  Can't find one that fits your needs?  Email the church office to get more information or plant the seed that may become a new group.  Groups are forming throughout the year and your information will help us with future group formation.
