Small Groups

Small Groups are 2-20 people who gather to build a community of faith. They meet in homes, outside, online, in coffee shops or they reserve space at the church. Some groups meet for several weeks a few times per year while others meet year-round. Some choose topical studies, others do Bible studies and some simply share life. Most importantly, Small Groups create a sense of belonging, helping a large church feel like a small church.

No commitment is required to join a group. Small Groups appearing on Group Finder are those that have room for more participants. You’re welcome to try out various groups to find the right fit for you.
