Our Small Groups


Image goes here.
Life was never meant to be a “lone ranger” journey. God has made us all with a relational need to know and to be known. We believe that the best way to go deeper in these relationships is through our small groups. All of our small groups meet in people’s homes. Please join us for one or more of them throughout the week!
