Small Groups

Substance Small Groups

These small groups are how we live out our belief that "Church doesn't start until the service is over." Statistically, one of the best ways to grow spiritually is to have 4 to 7 Christian friends in your church who do life with you, challenge you and encourage you in your faith. We hope these groups help you develop these friendships.

Connect Groups

Connect Groups are a specific type of small group where we share a meal together, discuss last week's sermon, and pray for one another. They are open to everyone and are a great place to meet new people!

Revival Parenting

Revival Parenting isn’t simply a parenting course. It is an invitation to shift your parenting paradigm. We often parent from the way we were (or weren’t) parented or the way we think we “should” parent. This is a journey to parent from a God-directed path that fits your unique family’s needs and values. We will revive your family dynamics, and increase your confidence in parenting through fresh insights and new discoveries.
