Small Groups

We are committed to offering rich opportunities for spiritual growth, life-long learning, and fellowship.

One of the ways we encourage engagement in our community is through small group offerings. Wherever you may be in your life’s journey we feel confident there is something here for you. Below you will find a list of our small group offerings with contact information. Should you have questions or want to dig deeper, please contact us.

Discipleship Groups

Groups for adults based in a deep discipleship curriculum. 

How do we grow in our belonging to God and to one another? If you are interested in exploring this and other crucial questions, consider joining a discipleship group. Discipleship Groups are 9-month weekly groups that will help you grow in your faith and develop deep friendships.  Each week we study the Bible and ask the questions, “What is God saying to me today?” and “How will I respond?” 

Discipleship Groups are led by church members and meet throughout the year. More information and group resources can be found online here.

Missional Communities

Groups oriented around a mission outside the walls of church.

Missional Communities (MCs) are groups of church members committed to growing in Christ together through regular fellowship and intentional engagement with people outside the church. Larger than typical church small groups, MC’s generally have 20-50 members inclusive of children when families participate. Our hope is that MCs embody two vital truths of the Christian faith: life in Jesus is best done in community, and our Lord calls us to go forth beyond our community to bless others with his truth, love, and mercy.

More information about Missional Communities can be found online here.

Men's & Women's Groups

Groups for people who want to share life together in Christ.


CLC Men's Groups

Most men have many acquaintances but few trusted friends. Along with the truth from scripture, the potential for meaningful relationships with other men is perhaps the most needed and appreciated aspect of the CLC process.  CLC involves small groups of men who desire to grow in their faith, their awareness of God’s work in their lives, and their places of service within the body of Christ.

Connect Downtown

This offering is a time to join with other women to talk about what it means to live a flourishing life. We’ll gather downtown at noon on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month. Our meetings will be at 150 3rd Avenue South at the Learning Center (2nd floor). Please let us know if you plan to attend — new people are welcome at any time!

Foyer Groups

Groups for church members wanting to meet new people over dinner.

Foyer groups are small groups of 10-12 adult parishioners who gather to enjoy casual fellowship and a meal once a month for four months. Each group can decide how and when they want to dine – what day of the week and where (in someone’s home, most frequently, or in a restaurant). Typically foyer groups roam from house to house on Sunday evenings and the host provides the main dish while everyone else provides the sides. No programming is involved – just good old fashioned social time. Registration is for one semester at a time so you can come and go with life seasons. Groups will be scrambled and remade each semester.

Online registration will be available here when foyer groups are forming again!
