Groups

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
1 Corinthians 12:27

You can't do life alone. 

Loneliness is not God's intention for us.  He made us for relationship with Himself and with one another, and the best way into real relationship in our church is through groups.  Our groups gather each week in a home or a coffee shop or around a table at church.  In a group you’ll make friends, study the Bible, and pray together. Groups come in all shapes and sizes — couples, recovery, divorce care, young adults, aging adults, man, women— the list goes on. Wherever you're at in life, there’s a group for you.
