One night each week during the school year, small groups meet in homes for the purpose of moving people toward a closer walk with Christ in a small group environment.

We are committed to helping people become followers of Jesus Christ. It is the mission that drives everything we do as a church. The small group is an ideal place for this mission to be accomplished. In a small group, people study God's Word together and are in a small enough environment to discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don't show up.


You will build spiritually enriching relationships.

You will be in an ideal environment for spiritual growth.

You will be challenged to put God’s truth into practice.

You will be regularly prayed for and cared for.

You will enjoy regular fellowship with other believers.


What is a Small Group?
Groups consist of 5 to 17 people that meet for 9 months for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. They are for adults of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity.

What kinds of groups are there?
We have groups comprised of all ages and stages of life. We will work to find a group that is a good fit for you.

Where do the groups meet?
Groups usually meet in group members’ homes. 

What about childcare?
Childcare is managed by each individual group. Some groups rotate childcare responsibility among group members, some hire a sitter, and some work out childcare needs according to individual family needs. 

When do the groups meet?
Groups meet one night each week during the school year. Groups decide which night of the week is best for them. 

How long do groups stay together?
Groups will meet for a 9-month term throughout the school year. 

How long does each meeting last?
Each group decides the length of time they will meet. Groups normally meet for about one and ½ hours. 

What happens in group meetings?
Though each group differs in how they do things, group meetings include a social time, group discussion, food, and prayer. 

What do groups study?
Groups discuss how to apply the prior week's sermon to their daily lives. 

Can I visit a group before "joining"?
Absolutely. We encourage everyone to check out a group before making a commitment. We hope visiting a group will relieve your natural hesitations and answer your questions.
