Why Staying Connected is Important

One of the ways we experience God's love for us is through each other, by walking through life together, sharing joys, sorrows and everything in between. In groups of two or more, we explore God's Word, asking questions that challenge and change us, so we can live as God's people, in God's world. We are preparing our hearts to live out our mission of becoming living proof of God's love, one person at a time

Serving together is a great way to stay connected. If you would like more information on any of the opportunities on this page, contact the listed leader directly or email us at
