Groups carry out the purpose of the church to connect people with God and others. Our groups are comprised of church members and non-church members. They meet at a variety of times, days and places. All Groups have the essential elements of Acts 2:42-47: Community Building: Fellowship (sometimes involves food), prayer for and with each other, accountability and caring for each other. Bible Study: Studying applicable Bible Studies with the purpose of knowing Christ and making Christ known. Mission/Multiply: Outward focus of ministry and mission through projects to multiply believers, other groups and churches.

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers.
Acts 2:42
