Winter Groups Start February 10

Connecting relationally, so we can grow spiritually.

Sunday Services aren't enough, no matter how great the teaching or the music. That's where groups come in. Groups are a welcoming and open. They provide a social and spiritual venue to encourage each other and grow in faith. There's nothing like seeing God working in someone else's life to encourage you.

It's not enough to say, "The Bible says . . . ," in the face of real-life tragedy. Adults often need a new starting point. But the starting point for Christian faith isn't, "The Bible says . . . ." It's better than that. It's Jesus.
