Small groups are committed to creating a conversational environment where people can explore faith, build friendships, have fun and ‘be missional’ (love God, love one another and serve the world) as well as providing a network of support and care.
Small group sessions are typically either 8 or 12 weeks long (February-April / June-July / September-November).
Small group sign-up months are typically January, May, and August.
Small groups are made up of various types of people in different seasons of life. Small groups range in size from 12-20 people and meet together weekly and/or bi-weekly to challenge, help and prayerfully encourage one another.
We believe that every attender and member should be connected to others in and through the small group ministry. Please stop by the Connections Bar to find out more about small groups.
