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.

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.
