Sunday Morning Communities
Some of our most vibrant groups meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 or 10:45 a.m. Each of these groups is based on real community and real relationships. We are always looking for new people to join as we walk through life together. Every community has a deep commitment to the Bible where we receive God’s encouragement, hope, and love. You have many options regarding groups! So, consider the communities below. Each one is welcoming and a great place to connect with your church family.
