June is Pride Month so why not celebrate with a picnic!  The LGBTQ+ and Allies Small Group invites you to come out for food, fellowship, and prayer as we give thanks for those in our congregation and community who are LGBTQ+.  We are all created in the beautiful image of God and coming together to support one another is important as we build up Christ’s kingdom.

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.
