Community groups are small groups of people gathering throughout the city with a mission to build authentic relationships, grow more like Jesus, care for one another, and reach people with the Gospel. In short, Community Groups are about community, growth, care, and mission.


We believe Community Groups are foundational to the life of the church and the individual believer. Our mission is to connect people in authentic relationships that lead to spiritual transformation.

Meeting Info

Community Groups meet regularly throughout the week across our city. Some meet in homes while others meet at church when childcare is offered. Many groups get together weekly, while others have found that every other week better suits them. There are many options, so please let us know how we can help connect you!
