Small Groups

Real life change happens in the context of relationships--small groups.

We all need a place to study the Bible, pray for each other and share our stories with people who will know us personally. Small groups provide the opportunities for us to:

 Connect with one another, Grow together, and Protect one another through prayer, support, and accountability.

Find a group, commit for a season, and experience real life change......

  • Rooted - Discipleship Development

    Rooted isn’t simply a bible study or a book. It is a community experience, where people practice 7 rhythms essential to a healthy relationship with Jesus. Individuals establish firm roots in the Truth of God’s Word through personal study and then come together to discuss what they’re learning in a space where they are safe and known.  Based on the book by Banning Liebscher where he discusses the life of David as an example of expanding his root system and development of his character through the process which leads him to his God given destiny as a king. This is the same way with our life, He prepare us into the vision that he calls us to do by making a difference either in our family, job or any areas of our life as undergo into his process.
