Small Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then we can live the full life He intends for us. Small Groups exist to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

We have three sessions throughout the year:

Winter/Spring : February – April

Summer: June – July

Fall : September – December

New groups start every semester making it easy to build community and enjoy different types of groups. Registration for Small Groups will be available prior to the beginning of each session.

Interested in leading a Small Group? Please contact Cinthia Gutierrez at [email protected] for more information.
