Small Groups

Small Groups provide the context where we live out our faith in community. Through the gospel, we are not just saved from our sins, but we are saved into God’s community – the church. While our Sunday morning gathering are vital to our church life, we believe discipleship happens in relationships that can be formed in smaller groups.

What does a small group look like?

Small groups offer the opportunity to meet new people, study the Bible, share prayer requests, grow together and develop a network of families that are there to help you and encourage each other in our walk with Christ, service to the church, and outreach to the community.
