Small Group Ministry

Gospel Communities serve as our primary way to grow in our walk with Christ through living in community with one another.  
Our goals for these groups:
1) Biblical- growing in God’s Word
2) Relational- spending time together
3) Missional- Living on mission & engaging others with the Gospel
Each Gospel Community is open for anyone to join at any time!

Equipping Classes

While Gospel Communities are our primary small group ministry that we encourage all members to be a part of, we also recognize that some people want additional knowledge and teaching about the Bible and particular topics which is what we offer in Equipping Classes.
The purpose of these classes is to equip believers for life and ministry. Each class will seek to equip people’s heads (i.e. educate our minds), hearts (i.e. fuel our affections for Jesus and other people), and hands (i.e. motivate our wills to obey and serve).
You can view our current options below. Childcare is provided during these classes.
If you are new or just checking out the church, you’re welcome to come and check out classes, too!

Wednesday Evening Equipping Class- 6:30pm
