Small Groups

Join a SMALL GROUP …. Come Experience Community! 

 

One of the best ways you can be a follower of Jesus is by being in community with other Christians.  Small groups are places where you can grow spiritually wherever you are on your faith journey while meeting people, getting connected, and building authentic relationships with God and others.

Our groups reflect the personalities, interests & life-stages of the members. Finding a small group community that fits you is easy.  Review the list below.   You can sign-up for a group at church in the office. Also, if you would like assistance in selecting a group that is right for you, contact Bev Talbot bev.talbot@verizon.net .
