Small Groups - Connect with others

Life is not meant to be lived alone or lonely. The Christian life, especially, is meant to be lived out in community. As such, one of our core values is that we journey with Christ in fellowship with friends. We have a robust small group ministry that starts with meeting pastors and transitions you slowly into a "Connect Group" that fits your lifestyle, location, schedule, and faith journey. This is meant to help you grow nearer to Christ as well as other people who attend our church.

New groups are forming and will begin the week of September 9-15.

  • Prayer - Mon 6:30pm

    An open time of prayer for our friends, country, and world. Led by Juanita Briggs in the Parlor.

  • North of 50 - Tues 10am

    Ladies! Are you somewhere “north of 50” and looking for some kindred spirits to spend time with? Check out our Tuesday Morning Small Group led by Ellen Dunn! The group is starting a new book, A Season of Mystery:  10 Spiritual Practices For Embracing A Happier Second Half of Lifeby Paula Huston, which looks at a fulfilling, grace-centered way to approach and live the second half of life. We’re a fun group, we enjoy fellowship, study, and prayer together, and there’s always room at the table for more! We meet every Tuesday morning in the church from 10 to 11:30, and all you need to bring is yourself. Contact Kelly in the church office or Ellen at if you’re interested.
