Community Groups are a key component in our mission as a church. Our mission is to encourage and equip people to become passionate followers of Christ and to embrace His mission as their own. We believe one of the best places for this to happen is in a small group. We call our small groups Community Groups because we believe that true change can only take place in the context of a caring relationship, an encouraging community.  We invite you to participate in our mission, and we hope you will consider joining a Community Group.
