Small Groups

Small Group is a great place to make connections with our church family and do life together, build friendships, learn God's Word, and have fun. No matter what kind of group you’re looking for, or what stage of life you’re in, we want you to be in a community with people who encourage you and help you grow in Christ.

Spiritual growth best happens within the context of relationships.

WANT TO START A SMALL GROUP?
You can start a Small Group in three different ways, you have the option of being a “host”, the option of being a “host and teacher” and also the option of being a "teacher" for your Small Group.  

WANT TO JOIN A SMALL GROUP?
We have several options on different days of the week and areas of town. Scroll down to see our current offerings and then to fill out an interest form. Pastor Denis will then get back to you and give you more details!
