A place to learn, grow and experience friendship

We believe that following Jesus happens the best when we’re in community. Our groups are made up of married couples, singles, and families with kids from all walks of life who meet in person and virtually.

"The purpose of small groups is to make and nurture disciples."
John Wimber - Founder of the Vineyard movement

Small groups are a vitally important part of our community—a place to let your guard down and build meaningful relationships with one another and with God.

What People Are Saying

Awesome Atmosphere. I felt welcomed by the people and most definitely welcomed by The Holy Spirit. Bible Studies are offered on Wednesday Nights as well as other Group Activities throughout the week. This has become my new church home and I hope that you feel drawn to come check us out. We do this better, together.
