Small Groups

We believe that one of the best ways to grow in Christian Maturity is to be involved in a small group that studies, prays and serves.  All of our small groups are open, just show up or call the church office for location information if it is unclear.  We have a variety of small groups:

Roberts Small Group

Meeting the 2nd Sundays each month in the Administrative Building Upper Conference Room and the 4th Sunday each month in the Sanctuary Foyer.

This group  gathers at 4:30 p.m. for a time of prayer, around 5:30 p.m. they each a meal together and at 6:30 they study the scriptures together.   What makes this gathering unique is the presence of all the children who participate in the study and prayer time.
