Life change happens in the context of relationships

Group Ministry

We believe God created us to live in authentic community and only then can we live the life He intends for us. Joining a group will connect you to the meaningful and life-changing relationships we all need. By sharing meals together, praying together, studying the Bible together, and serving the community together, participation in group ministry will allow you live out the mission of loving God, loving others, and making disciples.

Growth Groups

Our Growth Groups are designed to educate, equip, and empower you to become the disciple of Jesus you are called to be.

Crazy Love

Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy if you think about it. The God of the universe — the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and e-minor — loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss.

Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not . . . we all know something’s wrong.

Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts — it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same.

Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

What does this look like? How do I get there? Join us for this 10-week study, based on the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan, and discover what it looks like to live a life driven and characterized by love.

There is a book and a workbook for this Growth Group. A $25 suggested donation for materials is appreciated. If you’re unable to donate, please come and let Pastor Brian know. We have some funds available to assist.


What does it mean to follow Jesus? What does it mean to be Christ-centered? Do I really understand what I believe? This Growth Group will explore and dive deep into the basic teachings of Christianity and discover the possibilities of a life centered on Christ through ten weeks of personal reading and reflection, weekly group conversations, worship, and celebration.

This Growth Group meets on Wednesdays at 7pm from September 11-November 20.

Community Groups

Community Groups meet weekly for 12-week semesters and are built around four expectations, which we call the ABCDs:

Participants can expect to be held accountable by inviting people into your life to challenge you in your faith, priorities, and relationships.

Participants can expect to belong to something where they feel accepted, connected, and comfortable with a group of people.

Participants can expect to be cared for by one another. In turn, participants can expect to care for those outside their group through a group service opportunity each semester.

Participants can expect to engage in prayer and study of the Bible to help them live out the Christian faith.

D-Groups are gender-specific groups consisting of three to five people who meet weekly for interactive Bible reading, accountability and prayer for the lost. These groups provide a space for people to experience genuine accountability, confession of sin, deeper study of Scripture and deeper spiritual growth.
