Experience the gift of community
No matter where you come from, there’s a group for you. Join a Small Group and experience real relationships that will grow your faith.
Small Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
We are glad when people are coming to our church. Yet, the real question is not whether they are coming but are they changing? The church was never intended to only be a birthing center. The church has always existed to help people to grow.
Jesus’ instructions were clear, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; (Matthew 28:19-20)” Notice that Jesus doesn’t say, “believers” but rather he uses the term, “disciples.” Believers don’t impress Jesus much and they didn’t impress James much either; so much so that he declared, “even the demons believe and shudder (James 2:19).” Jesus is looking for disciples, people who are willing to take up their cross, give up their old ways and follow him (Matthew 16:24).

Leading a Small Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your Small Group successful through Small Group Leader Training & Coaching and a directory where your group can be managed and so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one season at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a Small Group leader you get to play an important role in that process. A group turns a crowd into community.
