Small Groups

Our mission with small groups is to provide an opportunity for people to connect with one another (six to twelve individuals) for the purpose of following the Great Commandment and accomplishing the Great Commission. If you are not part of a small group, but would like to be, please call the church office. 

"Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" 

(Matthew 22:37-39)
