Community Groups

We believe in the power of doing life together.

cross-icon-white-40

Our goal is that every adult find a small group or class that will strengthen their life journey and walk with Christ.

On-campus groups meet weekly for Bible study and discipleship. Off-campus groups meet one to three times a month for friendship, support, and spiritual growth. Members of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity are welcome.

Wednesday Community Groups

Wednesday groups are elective classes which meet every week on Wednesday at 7:00pm for approximately one hour. We continually have new classes starting and stopping throughout the year.

Topics are focused on helping strengthen you in your faith, family, finances, fitness and future. These classes are typically short term and provide a great place to get connected and grow stronger in every area of your life.

Current Wednesday Community Group Electives:

Sunday Morning Community Groups

Sunday morning groups meet every Sunday in classrooms at the main church campus. The time frame, 9:00am and 10:45am, makes it convenient for you to attend a class and then a service, or to attend service and then a class.

Each of the teachers give sound doctrine and provide you with the opportunity to connect with them and others in a meaningful way. These groups are typically long term so if you miss a week you can jump right back in the next week.
