Small Groups

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

We believe one of the marks of a disciple of Jesus is growth in knowledge of God and God’s Word through Bible Study.  While personal study of Scripture is encouraged, there is power in studying Scripture with other believers.

 Group study brings us to a deeper and richer understanding of God’s Word.
There are a number of adult study groups meeting weekly or semi-weekly that would fit the needs and interests of most. These small groups offer Bible study, fellowship, worship, service and outreach.
