Community Group

Community Groups

Every week we meet at various locations and times around the campus or at each other's homes to aid in our Christian walk through fellowship and transparency that is developed through community. From young adults to senior adults and everyone in between, no matter who you are, there is a community for you.

Childcare will be provided on campus for Nursery-6th grade children from 12:15-2:00 PM on Sunday.  Community groups not meeting during these times or off church campus will provide their own childcare.
