Small Groups

Small Groups are the life of our church. They are great spaces to connect with others and grow spiritually in small communities that are typically 5-12 people. Each group meets for approximately two hours and commonly the time is spent eating, talking about our faith, and praying. For more information about a particular small group, please email the group's listed contact.  For general questions about small groups, please contact
