No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus or what you may be going through, our Adult Small Groups provide a place for you to be yourself, develop friendships, and build your faith.
Small Groups are made up of people who enjoy being in community with one another and growing in their love for Jesus. We have a variety of Life, Bible Study, and Social Groups for you to join that meet in-person & online.

Life is better together

Groups typically meet online or in person twice a month. Let us know what your comfort level is when you sign up.
