Small Groups

We grow stronger, together.

family church Small groups

Small Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

M.O.M: Mothers on Mission to Lift One Another Up - This group serves to lift moms up, support one another, and create lasting friendships. While motherhood is beautiful and rewarding, it can also feel isolating and exhausting. Hebrews 10:24-25 says, "Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another...” In a world full of Mom-shaming and Mom-guilting, let’s band together, love one another, and lift each other up! We will be reading the book, Real Moms...Real Jesus by Jill Savage and discussing it together. The book takes us through the book of Matthew and shows us just how much God understands all that comes with being a mom. Not only will we read together but we will utilizing a private Facebook group page as another outlet to lift one another up - sharing encouraging scriptures, good reads, recipes, and more!

lead a small group

Leading a small group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your small group successful through Leadership Training. We then list your group in our "Now Offered" directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a small group leader you get to play an important role in that process.


We are excited that you are answering the call to lead and care for others. Sign up HERE to begin your Small Group adventure. Once your application has been received, we will contact you with training instructions and materials.
