Join a Group
Small groups are one important way to grow deeper in relationships with God and with one another. We learn to know Christ more and how to follow him in word and deed in the context of community.
Joining a small group is such a vital and easy way to get to know others in the church, establish friendships and grow in Christ in a more relaxed setting. Check out the groups — one of them might be a perfect fit for you!
- Look over the list below
- Fill out the information request form at the bottom of the page
- Have fun, make friends, and grow in faith!
Our small groups operate on a trimester system of meeting for three months and then taking a break for a month allowing everyone to recharge.
If you want to join a group but don’t want to get stuck in a group forever, this allows everyone the chance to join a church group for a season and then re-evaluate.
Group break months are: April, August, & December
Saturdays. 8-9AM. Social Hall.
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.
