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:

Groups Meeting at the Church

Roberts Small Group

Meeting the 2nd Sundays each month (4:30-6:30 pm) in the Administrative Building Lower Conference Room and the 4th Sunday each month (4:30-7:30 pm) in the Sanctuary Foyer.

This group gathers at 4:30 pm for a time of prayer, around 5:30 pm they eat a meal together (4th Sundays only) and at 6:30 pm 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.
