Follow Jesus Together
We believe that we are not designed to do life on our own. Instead, we are meant to live in community – loving one another and following Jesus together. Every week, we gather around tables, on porches, at coffee shops, in living rooms, and online, to connect with one another and grow in our love for God.
Group life is an integral part of how we are building a loving community that follows Christ in order to reach our community. Find a group for you and lets follow Jesus together.
JOIN A GROUP
Unless otherwise noted, registration for each group is required and is available until the group is full.
Being in community is vital to our spiritual journey. Join a community of people in your same life stage to get connected.
