groupS ministry

We believe that we are designed to live life in community.  

Sunday and Midweek Groups are one of the many ways we strive to learn, grow, and share together.

Join a group!

If you are interested in connecting to a group, we want you to feel welcome. Contact Calli Wickes for more information about current and upcoming groups.

Current groups

Groups are the best way for you to get connected with others. There is a place for everyone to belong in a Group. Whether you are a new follower of Jesus, or a veteran follower, there is a group for you. Check out the groups and see which one is right for you.
