Small Groups

Small groups are a great way to explore topics and questions in Christianity while building closer connections with your church family.

Whether you are looking for a short-term dive into a particular topic or book of the Bible, or a long-term connection through an ongoing class, there is probably a small group to meet your needs.

If you don’t see one that’s a good match now, check back later as some small groups change seasonally.

Sundays

"That the World May Know" Israel Series ~ resumes in September

  • 8:00 am & 9:30 am

Join us for this video series to experience the Bible in historical context. Teacher and historian Ray VanderLaan guides us through the land of the Bible, illuminating the historical, geographical and cultural context of Scripture. Appropriate for all age groups, this study will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus.

Although most attend every Sunday, you are welcome to join us whenever your schedule allows. Children and guests are always welcome.

So What?

The “So What?” small group is a time to get together and talk about the sermon we just heard 1st service. We will dig into the message, share and discuss what key elements we took away from the message and how we can apply these to our daily lives. This will be a fun time of fellowship and learning together. 

Women’s Discipleship

To grow in our faith is a choice. You have to choose it, to want it. We need to be in relationship with others who also desire growth. Women’s Discipleship group is where women meet in small groups for the express purpose of applying Scripture to life in relational discipleship.
