  • community groups

    Community Groups are groups organized by age ranges and similar walks of life. These groups meet more by calendar events rather than weekly.  They consist of: Koinonians (50's & 60's) and Cornerstones (70's and above), Foundations (30's & 40's) and Young Adults (18-20 somethings).

  • life groups

    Joining a Life Group is an opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and in friendships with other people from our church. Groups meet regularly to eat, pray, care, study, and serve together. For some groups "regularly" is weekly, every other week or monthly.
