Jesus said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” -John 13:34-35.

Community Groups  


Small Groups create an environment where people can grow their faith while connecting, supporting and sharing life with others. Small groups range from Bible studies to common interest groups where members connect outside the church (examples: coffee shops or sporting events). No matter where you may be on your faith journey, having close relationships with others is Biblical and beneficial. 


Here are some samples of small groups:

  • Couples

  • Marriage and Family

  • Marriage and Family for empty nesters

  • Men's Groups

  • Singles

  • Women's Groups

If you are interested in any of these community groups we would love to help you get connected. Please email Bruce Droogsma or stop by the “Next Step” area following our Sunday worship service.
