Small Groups

Learn the Story of God’s Grace through Scripture and Community

We encourage you to attend one of our small groups for you to begin or continue to live, learn and share the story of God’s grace.

Sunday Adult Small Groups

Chapters Led by Ben White. Yes, it is that simple; they work through the Bible a “Chapter” at a time moving between the Old Testament and the New Testament. This group is one you can move in and out of as each week’s study is independent of itself; you don’t have to worry about missing a class or making up work. The group is for all ages and meets at 8:15 am.

Stories Made New – Led by Vic Cison. This group is currently involved with the DVD series, “That the World May Know”, featuring Ray Vander Laan, its founder and creator, who guides the study through the various lands and times featured in our Bible. This group is a fun, entertaining and eclectic group of individuals dedicated to improving their knowledge of God’s Holy Scriptures, Jesus’ ministry and the life of the early church. This group is for all ages and meets at 9:45 am.

Christianity in A Secular World – Led by Brittney King. This group does a variety of studies such as studying a book of the Bible. If you are looking for a mix of people with whom to connect, who sometimes has brunch and works on church projects together, this is a group for you. This group meets at 9:45 am.
