Small Groups


We believe that Small Groups offer a place for each of us to learn and share. They are also a great way to connect with others in the church through study, conversation and service. We want our groups to be a safe place for people to explore and nurture their faith. For more information about small groups, including how to get connected to any that are listed below, please contact Michelle Andrews
