Small Groups

Small groups are a great way to get students plugged in to a Christian community where they feel welcome to be themselves, ask tough questions, meet new friends, and ultimately, grow in their relationship with Jesus.


We believe that small groups are the best way for students to grow in their faith, so we highly encourage all students to be part of a group. Find a group here.

Join us on the second Saturday of every month! Play games, hang out, eat food, and hear a message about Jesus. Learn more about oneighty here.

Upcoming Dates:

January 13: Pentathlon
