Connect with a Small Group

Joining a small group is the easiest and most powerful way to connect at church. In group, we discuss the current Sunday morning teachings, hear how each other is doing, and pray for one another.

Sundays 11:45 am-1:15 pm- We only have one small group. We meet immediately after Sunday service with a shared lunch (each person brings a side to share). During group, kids eat and play together separately as parents take turns supervising them.

Connect to the Prayer Room

Getting involved in the Prayer Room is a great way to connect to the church's mission and grow friendships with others. Go to the Prayer Room Page to see where you can serve and how we can equip you. We want everyone to understand the prayer room's mission and find a consistent place to be involved.
