ALL ARE INVITED TO CONNECT
BY BEING IN A GROUP!
Young or old, married or single, male or female, there is a group waiting for you. In a small, intimate setting, you will experience the love of God as you connect to a group of soon-to-be friends who are ready to experience life with you. Together you will become a group of friends as you eat, laugh, pray, share, study and serve together. Groups meet at the church or in homes throughout the week.
 
GROUPS ARE
  • a special part of relationship building with each other and with Jesus
  • a combination of fun, fellowship, learning and study
