Community Groups

We believe that life is about relationships. Our Community Groups are places where life-giving relationships are built upon our core values. Community Groups provide the best opportunities for people to get to know each other on a deeper level. Authentic, healthy relationships not only provide a connection into church life, but also are a source of strength, encouragement and joy throughout life’s seasons. There are several options to choose from. Whatever your stage of life, there’s a Community Group for you!

Please contact us if you have any questions:
