All of our Groups are designed for you to experience discipleship, fellowship, prayer, and care. We believe being in community matters, and having a group of people to walk through life with is important. Let us help you find the perfect group for you!

Sunday Groups

The Faithful Servants Life Group meets weekly to fellowship, study God’s Word, pray, and encourage one another.  This group focuses on the expositional study of entire books of the Bible, studying chapter by chapter, and verse by verse.
This group also meets biweekly on Fridays at 4:00 pm in the chapel for “Saints Alive.”  This fun-spirited gathering is formulated with one object — eat and laugh!  Themed meals are planned throughout the year.
Single Focus is a dynamic group of college students and young adults intent on building community, faith, and service to the Lord. 
The goal is to follow God’s plans, build a strong walk with the Lord, and create lasting friendships through weekly Bible, topical, and book studies that lead to group discussions and life applications.
