Bible Studies & Small Groups

Christians grow best when they worship together, grow through study and small groups and serve amongst our neighbors. We encourage you to look through this list of small groups and studies and get involved. If you’re already active in worship, let’s take the next step and grow together.


In addition to these small groups, Sunday School classes for all ages meet on Sundays at 9:40 a.m. We also encourage everyone to "band together" and become part of a small group. Groups can be as small as three people, and you can meet in person or electronically. Learn more about banding together
