We believe that God designed us for community. He uses other people to grow us, and He uses us to grow other people. We like to say that our small groups are where we pursue healthy relationships and help one another take steps to follow Jesus. Because of that, we believe that being a part of a small group should be an essential element in the life of a follower of Jesus. Since each group is comprised of a unique set of individuals, they will all be a little different. However, you can expect some time of conversation, study, discussion, and prayer in each group.


Different Types of Groups

We have many different groups. To help you find just the right place to plug in, we've separated our groups into three different types:


Small Groups

Small groups are made up of 8-10 people and in these groups all members commit to meeting together for a specified amount of time (typically 12-18 months). These groups all start at the GroupLink event in January or August of each year. Small groups are made up of a variety of different combinations of people and studying varying materials. One of the key drivers of these groups is the development of relationships and formation of consistent community among group members in order to help one another take steps in following Jesus.


Seasonal Groups

Seasonal groups short term and have a start date and an end date. These groups typically meet for 3 or 4 months at a time. We have groups that meet for the Spring season, Summer season, and Fall Season. New groups start at the beginning of the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Seasonal groups are usually formed around a specific topic, curriculum, or study theme for the pre-determined time frame. For example, we often have seasonal marriage groups, financial management groups, or groups that will study a specific book of the Bible together. Some of these groups are also formed with a specific demographic in mind-e.g. men's groups or women's groups.


Ministry Groups

Ministry groups are made up of people who are either in the same stage of life, or share another common demographic (like gender or age). The groups listed here are all on-going which means if you fit the demographic for any particular group, you are welcome to try it out at any time! We currently have ongoing ministry groups for children, teenagers, adults (mixed genders together), men, women, and senior adults.
