Small Groups

"Growing authentic small communities to become more like Jesus."

Every moment holds opportunity to become more like Jesus, and the choices are sometimes harder than we would like.  Being part of an honest, Jesus-centered small group can make the journey easier by connecting people together to laugh, cry, love, and learn through the ups and downs of life.

What is a small group?
A small group is a gathering of 3 to 12 adults who meet at least twice a month to pray for each other, study Scripture or other Christian resources, and who serve together at least annually.

Several groups follow the sermons using the Bible and a weekly Sermon Study Guide or related Small Group materials.
