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.
Race & Faith Learning Groups
Groups start throughout June
As followers of Jesus, we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves. One of the many ways we can do this is by learning and caring about the ways in which racism and injustice impact our community. These short-term groups are centered around books, podcasts, and movies that allow for candid discussion and open conversations to grow together.
