Because life is better together

Please check with the leader of your small group to see if, when, where and how

you will be meeting during the crisis.

Small Groups are a place you can grow with others to become more like Jesus and reach the potential God has put inside of you. Small Groups offer people: a place to connect, a place to protect, and a place to grow.

“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back to back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple braided cord is not easily broken."  Ecclesiastes 4:12
