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.

  • Child friendly groups are available for people with children.

How do I get involved?
