"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." - Hebrews 10:24-25

Groups are where you can connect with others who are also discovering a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. You can either join a group or start your own. Either way, you don’t have to live life alone. God designed you to live in community with others. Click on the following Groups Directory and find the right group for you!

LEADING A GROUP

To lead a group, you don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to know all the right answers. You just have to be willing to provide a space for others to discover, connect, grow or serve. If you want to lead a learning based group, we will provide you with a list of Recommended Curricula to choose from. We believe that God powerfully uses groups to change lives through Jesus Christ and as a Group Leader, you have a chance to be a part of that.
