To belong is to be related to and a part of something.
It is membership, the experience of being at home…
To belong is to know, even in the middle of the night,
that I am among friends
.  -Peter Block

Loving One Another by Choosing Community

 As we grow larger, we also want to grow smaller! Through groups, we’ll meet new friends and grow spiritually together. Our groups offer a warm atmosphere for friendship, study, and just doing life together. Groups vary in demographics, location, and style–providing a place for everyone.

Most groups are meeting via Zoom or outside during this season. Contact the group leader for details.
