As the saying goes, connection and growth happen best in circles, not rows. Groups are a great way to meet people, develop relationships, grow spiritually, and make a larger church seem small.

Available Groups

Community groups are ongoing groups that meet from September- May. They generally meet in homes or at the church. Some are formed by geographic location, and some by stage of life. They are designed to help you connect relationally and grow spiritually.
We have groups for married and single adults, young adults, men, and women.

Theology Class: Understanding Soteriology

A 5-session study of key theological terms and positions that frame the Biblical understanding of salvation, through a consideration of Calvinism and non-Calvinistic viewpoints.
This study is designed to help participants clearly grasp the differing views of salvation and their impact on our view of God’s character, our faith, and our eternity. Being mindful of the danger that discussions about Calvinism can stir controversy and polarize believers, this study will seek mutual respect and unity in addition to clarity.

This class will be led by Larry Nees who, in his pastoral ministry, has taught and struggled to learn more of God’s astounding work of salvation through Jesus.

When: Tuesdays, 6:15-8pm, beginning April 2.
