Adult Groups Ministry

We currently have 2 primary avenues to engage with adult groups and Bible studies
1) D-Groups (Discipleship Groups that meet throughout the week)
2) Anchored (Sunday Morning, 10am Co-Ed Class)
1) D-Groups serve as our primary way to grow in our walk with Christ through living in relational 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
D-Groups Groups include both closed groups that meet with a specific group for a specific amount of time and open groups that are available anyone to join at any time. (Contact a pastor or email: for details)
