Our small group philosophy is simple: always have an open chair. All of our small groups are open groups. That means you are always welcome to show up at any of our small groups, aside from groups specific to women or men. In fact, our hope is that our small group atmosphere is so inviting that it will become the one thing each week that you don't want to miss. Our small groups are built on the mantra: know and be known, love and be loved. Our groups are a place where you can learn God's Word, grow in relationships with others, and develop a genuine Christian community that will spur you on to love.
