small groups

"doing life together"



    Life Groups meet twice a month for one year.  These longer term home groups are designed to disciple adult believers through relationship, scripture and interaction with one another.

    Life Groups / Various times and days                       
    "Discipleship is lifelong and happens in the context of relationships." 

    Life Groups are a year long commitment to developing relationships in the Body of Christ, and to continual growth in our Christian walk. Life Groups meet to engage in Christian discussion and study, to encourage one another, and to share food and life with each other. Our goal is that your life group will grow closer to Christ as you form life-long relationships with each other.

    Contact the church office for groups and locations.


    Our traditional small groups meet weekly for thirteen weeks (September 11-December 10)and center around a topic or activity.  These short term classes are designed to enrich a believer through short term learning and fellowship.
