Small Groups

Our Small Groups are designed to be missional, transformational and relational. They change us, help us grow, and get us to go out and do good in the world.

In Matthew 18:20 Jesus says, "For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them."

Read through the Bible 2020

This New Year, resolve to grow deeper in your faith! Join us in journeying through the scriptures as we read the bible from beginning to end. We will provide you with a schedule of brief daily readings and encourage you when the going gets tough (genealogies! Leviticus!). The clergy will host special monthly gatherings where you can come with questions. To receive the schedule of readings and let us know you’re along for the adventure, email Baleta McKenzie. For the List of Daily Readings, click here.
