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
Belong in a GroupLoving 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.
Choose a group type and explore the days and locations available.
Sunday Groups meet both online and on-campus, usually on Sunday mornings during one of the services.
