A small group is a gathering of people who meet regularly around a common interest for the purpose of growing closer to Christ.
We believe big power lies within small groups. Over the centuries, God has used small groups to ignite reformations, usher in revivals, and rewrite history books. We offer two semesters: (February - June) and (August - December), and these groups open their doors to everyone.
