Find Belonging in a Group

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.

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.
