LIFE GROUPS

"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."

HEBREWS 10:24-25

One night each week during the school year, small groups meet in homes for the purpose of moving people toward a closer walk with Christ in a small group environment.

We are committed to helping people become followers of Jesus Christ. It is the mission that drives everything we do as a church. The small group is an ideal place for this mission to be accomplished. In a small group, people study God's Word together and are in a small enough environment to discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don't show up.

You will build spiritually enriching relationships.
You will be in an ideal environment for spiritual growth.
