Small Groups

Enjoying a sense of community with other followers of Jesus is crucial to our spiritual health.  One of the best ways to experience community with other followers of Jesus is through involving yourself in a small group.  When times of trouble come (and they always do), it helps to have a group of people who lend support and encouragement.  Our group names, times, and brief descriptions are listed below.  We look forward to seeing you in a small group soon!
