We are convinced that life change happens best in smaller groups, where people can experience and process life together in community with others. To us, groups are not merely a program or an event. They are about incorporating discipleship into the flow of our everyday lives by sharing life with others. It is where the thoughts, concepts and ideas taught in the large environments like Sunday morning worship gatherings take on flesh and blood and are applied in our daily lives. It is a vehicle for learning, and also to into practice what we learn by being in community with others.
Meet new friends in a low-commitment environment. Connect groups meet on a less frequent basis, and anyone is welcome to drop in.
Join a short-term group focused around a study topic. Most learning groups run for 6-8 weeks and meet at the church building.

We know you have a lot of questions when deciding to take your next step with a group. We have compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions, but if you have any other questions, please give us a call or fill out the interest form below.
We all need community, but it can look different at various points in your life. Your unique interests, availability, and commitment level all factor into what your next step should look like. So, we have a variety of ways to take your next step in following Jesus together in community.
Consider how much time you have, and how ready you are to commit. Connect groups are a great next step for those just getting started. Learning groups are a short-term commitment, but at a deeper relational level. Life groups are our favorite because this is where you grow the most.

Each group is autonomous to decide how they will arrange childcare. If your family or your group needs it, the church offers reimbursement of childcare costs for use during your Group meeting. You can download the Childcare Reimbursement Form.
