Small Groups

With Small Groups we simply want to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then
can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through
fellowship and discipleship is part of our design, but meaningful
relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why small groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. Small Groups add a personal touch to our church so that we can connect and grow together.

Interested In Leading?
Leading a small group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving
others by giving them a place to connect. Leading a group is
simple—choose a topic or activity that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your small group successful through Leadership Training. We
believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving at least one step toward Christ, and as a small group leader you get to play an important role in that process. Small group training is offered prior to every semester.
