Community Groups

Community groups are the heartbeat behind this community. Each group meets once a week in a home, on a college campus, or outside in a park. These groups include: discussions about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, The Gospel, studying God’s Word, serving, and discipleship. We also periodically plan social events to have fun!
