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. Discover more about our current Growth Groups below.

The Prayer Course
Wednesdays at 7:00pm – January 25-March 15
Ever felt like you just don’t know what to say when you pray? Does it seem like your prayers lack focus or power? Are you ready to grow deeper in your prayer life?

Our first Growth Group of 2023 will be “The Prayer Course.” This 8-week journey begins January 25 and will help you grow and deepen your prayer life. We’ll be looking at the Lord’s Prayer as a model (teaching us what to pray) and a map (teaching us how to pray).


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.
