Discipleship Groups

…teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.

Matthew 28:20a

Discipleship Groups seek to lead people along a path toward a deepening relationship with Jesus. Our hope is that  as you grow and abide in Christ, connecting in relationships with others, you will be equipped to better serve and share the Gospel. We desire to walk with Jesus daily in a Transformed Journey leading to personal application.
