Groups

Grow in Faith

Small Groups are a meaningful way to grow in faith in community.  They are spaces of love and trust, where folks can explore their faith and questions, and grow closer to God and to one another.  Currently, Small Groups are offered throughout the week–morning, afternoon and evening.  Our small groups each have their own flavor and cover a range of discussion topics.

If you would like to learn more, are interested in joining a small group or would like to lead a small group, please contact the church office or Pastor Kathy.

Our small groups include:

Mom’s Prayerful Meditation Circle Sunday Mornings meets online before church at 8:15 a.m. A short devotional is read, we meditate for 20 to 25 minutes, and end time together with an optional fellowship time.  Contact Jackie or the church office for more information or to receive the Zoom Room link.
