Small Groups

All of our groups welcome new members! Contact a leader and try us out. Small group participation is a

wonderful way to make connections with God and other people. 


We believe that authentic growth in the Christian faith happens in a community where we gather to study

and learn and serve.  This is what it means to live as disciples of Christ. Looking for a Small Group? 

We have several groups and classes ranging in age, seasons of life, and Bible Study/discussion topics.


There is always something to get involved in at our church. 

Contact Rebecca Greener more information on our adult ministries by emailing
