Small Groups

Small groups consist of people who gather together to get to know other Christians, to grow in their relationship with Christ, and to reach out to the unchurched.

Each small group is under the leadership of a trained small group leader who is responsible for coordinating the meetings, activities, and for providing on-going support and encouragement to the small group members.

We strongly encourage everyone to attend a small group on a regular basis. We have a variety of small groups to choose from.
