Small groups connect us relationally to share life and faith together as we grow in our relationships with Jesus Christ and each other. Our small groups are for all adults regardless of age, background or where you are in your Christian journey. Groups learn together, fellowship together and serve together. Most small groups are composed of 12-15 participants although there are a few Sunday morning small groups that are much larger.

"The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers." Acts 2:42
Bible Studies open our minds and hearts to the Bible and one another. Faith is born and nourished, our understanding is deepened and we not only learn, but allow God to transform us and the culture around us. Bible studies are for adults of all ages whether or not you are familiar with the Bible or are picking it up for the first time. It is an opportunity to learn truth for today. Each Bible study has a facilitator who is really the "lead learner" as they learn alongside the participants.

"Two are better than one because they have a good return for their hard work. If either should fall, one can pick up the other. But how miserable are those who fall and don’t have a companion to help them up! Also, if two lie down together, they can stay warm. But how can anyone stay warm alone? Also, one can be overpowered, but two together can put up resistance. A three-ply cord doesn’t easily snap." Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12
