Looking for a group to get plugged into? This is your next step!

We believe disciple-making groups, where we can meet in community with others and study God’s Word, are a critical part of growing in Christ and a critical tool in reaching others for Christ. We offer several options and levels of disciple-making groups to assist you.

You can meet ONLINE or IN PERSON for prayer and Bible study, join one of our small groups!
