Current Small Groups

Small groups are a great way to make friends and grow together in the Christian faith. To join a small group, contact the small group leader or sign-up in the foyer. The small group leader can answer questions, give you further instructions, and give directions to where the group is meeting. If childcare is provided by your small group, please discussion childcare plans with your small group leader before your group begins.
