Follow Jesus Together in Groups
You’ll often hear us saying that, “We grow better in circles than in rows.” What we mean is that while we learn a lot by listening to Sunday services, it’s often in coming together, sharing, and asking our questions out loud that we grow the most. That’s why groups are so important to our spiritual life. We’ve got all kinds of groups for all ages.
Unless otherwise noted, registration for each group is required and is available until the group is full.
