College-Age Community Groups in the North GA Region

Community Groups

Community groups are the heartbeat behind this community. Each group meets once a week in a home, on a college campus, or at the church. 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!

Quiet Time Resources

We have several resources available for those looking to get started with daily spending time with the Lord in His Word. We believe in equipping the next generation in reading the Bible. Everyone says to “read your Bible” but often it is difficult to know where to start or how to read different books in the Bible.
