Community Groups

Community groups are the primary way we encourage our body towards the kind of Biblical community that fosters spiritual growth. Our vision is not to be a church with community groups but to be a church of community groups, where the Biblical expressions of serving, caring, encouraging, exhorting, and praying for one another are carried out in love by the people of God journeying through life together- not merely fulfilling a weekly mandate to “go to community group.” If you are not involved in a community group yet we strongly encourage you to make this the next step you take in growing as a follower of Christ. For more information on joining a community group, please reach out to our Groups Team Lead, Dave Schaffer, and visit our listing of public community groups.



Trials and suffering are common to the human condition; Christians are not exempt. There are times in our lives when trials and suffering seem to dominate our existence. Through these trials, God wants to transform our lives to see him and to worship him to a greater extent. Unlike Community Groups, Journey Groups are short-term small groups with a purpose of refocusing our worship of God as we invite the truth of the gospel into our past, present and future and learn to walk faithfully with our identity founded in Jesus alone. Those who struggle or have struggled with habitual sin issues, abuse, sexual assault or other traumatic experiences are encouraged to pray about and consider Journey Groups. The fundamental truths taught in Journey Groups, however, are valuable for anyone as we are all in need of ongoing redemption.

Our Women Equip ministry is dedicated to encouraging women to faithfully follow our Lord, be devoted to His Word, and to love one another. We are motivated by the Gospel to disciple women to the glory of God, and to equip them to use their gifts to edify the body of Christ. Our priority is to lead women to Jesus as the only means for salvation, sanctification, and hope.
