Small groups are vital to who we are becoming and where we are going as a church.  They are our primary venue for making friends, inviting God's transformation through Scripture and prayer, and living on mission together to make a difference in the world. 
 
Our adult small groups are semester based, and meet regularly.  Three times a year we share a small group menu with all the options for the coming semester.  We will help you find a group that is the best match for where you are on your spiritual journey, as well as for your schedule.  Some of our groups also have a childcare available.
