Small Groups

It takes a lot of counter-cultural effort to build real community in our day and age, but community is the context in which discipleship and God’s Kingdom are lived out.

All of life is better together — eating out, going to a movie, attending a conference, seeing your favorite band — it’s all made exponentially better when we experience it together. The same is true of faith.

As you can imagine the Covid-19 pandemic that began back in March of 2020 significantly changed how we did church. For more than a year, we were kept from meeting together in-person and forced to move online. This impacted our small groups considerably.

We are in the midst of restructuring and rebuilding our small group options. Some will be in-person. Others will be virtual. And others will likely be a hybrid between the two.

If you’d like to be updated with small group options as they become available, please email Pastor CJ. He’d be delighted to hear from you.

As our small groups begin to regroup and regather, they will be listed here. Here are our current active small groups. Please contact the group leader for details.
