Community Groups

Our community groups are an important avenue of ministry in our church. Faithfulness to the biblical description of relationships within the church requires us to gather more often than Sunday mornings. The purpose of our community groups is to foster these relationships through fellowship, Bible study, and prayer, so that the grace that gathers us as a church begins to influence our lives together. Our community groups meet in various members’ homes, typically twice a month, from September through May. Our hope is that these groups are the starting point for relationships that continue to grow outside of these specific meeting times. Groups usually consist of 10-18 people, with size limited by available space. If you are interested in attending a community group or need more information, please email
