We are not meant to do life alone…

“The fellowship of the church is part of God’s good news to mankind. It imparts to the gospel one of its most thrilling notes – that when Christ saves a person, He not only saves them from their sin, He saves them from their solitude.” ~ Frank Colquhoun

Developing meaningful relationships in a big church can be challenging. It is within smaller groups that we nurture deeper connections with one another. Our small groups are usually 8-12 people who meet together regularly with the purpose of studying the Scriptures, growing in our faith and loving one another as we do life together.

Due to Covid protocols we are adjusting the way we meet, but we are meeting nonetheless either virtually or in person, with the appropriate precautions in place! If you are interested in joining a small group, please look through our current groups below. They can be filtered by location. Fill out the registration form for the group(s) you are interested in and we will be happy to connect you with a group leader!
