Small Groups not only impacted my life...they changed my life.


Small Groups are where life happens.


Small Groups have really helped to refine and deepen my understanding of what it means to BE the Church.


The dynamic of small groups is one of the the quintessential ways of Christ to aid in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
