Our small group ministry strives to encourage all member to be a part of this wonderful way to grow in faith. We’d love to see you at one of our small group gatherings! Our small groups include three components:

Connect

Grow

Grow in faith through intentional prayer practices, scripture reading and honest discussion around how our lives are connected to and shaped by the Gospel.

Share

Share the Gospel through actively being the hands and feet of Christ in the world together.
