SMALL GROUPS

Small Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Sign Up for a Small Group Today!
All available groups are listed below.



LEADING A SMALL GROUP

Leading a Small Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your Small Group successful through Leader Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. If you struggle with finding great content to cover, dont worry. You can choose to use our own in house Discovery Curriculum that has discussion and video content based on the Sunday messages. We believe people’s lives are changed one season at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a Small Group leader you get to play an important role in that process.

If you're interested in leading a Small Group Join us for Small Group Leadership Training offered at Step 3

Let’s get together and explore what you will do when God places an open door before you!
