Small Groups are one of the best ways to connect people in a community where they can share life and grow in faith.

A small group has 8-12 people who meet regularly online or in-person to pray, study the Bible, talk about how Scripture relates to their lives, and support each other through the highs and lows of life. In-person and online opportunities are available. Join a small group today! 

Visit our Leader Resources page for tools, studies, and discussion guides for small group leaders.
