God created us to be in community with one another. Belonging to a small group gives us a place to build relationships, learn, share, pray, ask questions and participate in discussion. We believe joining a small group is an important step in growing as a Disciple of Jesus Christ. Jesus had a small group and his followers were the first disciples who taught us to know Christ, worship God, love others and serve the world.
Many of our small groups and short term classes that will help you grow in your spiritual journey meet on Wednesday evening and other times.

When Helping Hurts
Shows how some alleviation efforts, failing to consider the complexities of poverty, have actually (and unintentionally) done more harm than good.

Rev. Anna Scharbo
Psalms: Pathway to Prayer
Are you overjoyed with God? Are you angry with God? Are you seeking forgiveness? Are you in a broken relationship? Are you grieving? There is a Psalm for you! 7 weeks. Pat Ester
Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us, mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts, emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God’s will from our own. 9 weeks. Kim Cooke
