Small Groups

Small Groups are communities where we can meet and enjoy friends, learn together 

and grow closer to God. We offer a variety of groups: some groups to study the Bible together, others to offer support to one another, and others to engage in activities together.

If you find a group that interests you, you can sign up using the form at the bottom of the page.

  • Doug's Book Club: Dietrich Bonhoeffer - The Cost of discipleship
