Adult Small Group Ministries
Our Small Groups are a collection of classes and discussion groups designed to help you explore how faith and life come together as we grow in our discipleship – the very act of living like Jesus every day. We offer new courses regularly on a wide variety of topics, from Bible study to Christian parenting to dealing with grief and loss and much more. Our hope is that the knowledge you gain and the relationships you form in your life group will deepen and enrich your walk with God, empowering you to become a better disciple and initiate new disciples as well.
Life Groups are curriculum-based classes lasting anywhere from a few weeks to a year.
Registration for life group classes follows a standard academic calendar, with Fall registration taking place in August or September and Winter registration taking place in January. We also offer a few classes specifically for the Lenten season that begin after Ash Wednesday and conclude before Easter. Life Groups include the special Disciple Bible Study series.

Registration links will be posted on this page whenever registration for courses is open.
Grace Groups are fellowship groups that meet regularly on an ongoing basis. For more information, please email Shawn Foreman.
