Our small groups meet throughout the week to accommodate for individual needs. I hope is that everyone will find a small group to call home. Meeting in small groups allows us to get to know one another in a deeper way than we can during Sunday morning worship. Building deep relationships allows us to care for one another better through the joys and sorrows of life. We invite you to find a small group that fits your schedule and join us!
We have many small groups meeting on Wednesdays 6:45-8:00pm. Please click here to see a complete list of Wednesday evening small groups.

Youth Group for middle and high schoolers meets Wednesdays 6:45-8:00pm and Sundays 4:00-6:00pm in the Youth Loft. Our youth grow in relationship with God and one another through teaching, prayer and play! New friends are always welcome and encouraged to join!
