Connection Groups are small groups where adults connect through fellowship, friendship, and faith journeys. Group discussion is based on content from the current worship series, allowing sermon topics to take root in a deeper way in the lives of participants. Groups generally meet for a 5-8 week session three times a year.


2019 SPRING SERIES: Crux | weeks of April 28 through May 26

We'll discuss fresh ways to think through life's big questions and seeming paradoxes. Often, it's in the tension between two opposing sides where we find the cross, and life.

New Connection Groups have recently formed. Please complete the Connection Group Interest Form to get connected!
