The mission of the small groups is to offer opportunities for the believer to train, study, learn, and teach the Word of God. Our goals are: to teach the truth about God and His Word; to supply educational and fellowship opportunities to enhance Christian growth and living among members; to equip disciples for the work of ministry; to help the converted believer grow into mature discipleship.

Who is My Neighbor?
In this class, we'll explore questions and topics related hospitality as a Christian practice and tradition. What is hospitality, and what does it have to do with being neighborly? What if our neighbor is our enemy? To try and answer such questions, we will consult both Scripture and theological resources, and we will also consider examples of hospitality from literature and film.

Marriages are sustained by far more than the romantic love of two individuals. To thrive, marriage invites the love and support of a community of friends, loved ones, and the wisdom of Scripture. Whether your married, engaged, or dating; whether your relationship is brand new or celebrating a 50 year anniversary, whether your relationship is difficult or a joy, this group aims to offer love, support, and an opportunity to learn from others and from Scripture how to cultivate healthier relationships inside and outside of a marriage.
