Groups

God created us for community, find your place to plug in below!

Our Small Groups are where we make a big church feel small. It is where the meaning of "church family" comes into focus. We believe that a healthy church is made up of dynamic Bible-centered large group worship, as well as small groups where transformational living is taught and modeled. That happens when we combine application of Scripture through living life together in community.
