community groups

Our groups are a community of people who do life together, particularly committed to the core functions of discipleship, care, mission, and multiplication. While each group looks a little different, all groups meet regularly to discuss and apply the Bible and pray, to connect & care for one another during the week, and look for ways to serve & reach out to new people with the gospel.

Community Group FAQ

How do I find a group? 

Feel free to look through the list of groups below and reach out to their leaders. You can also contact Pastor Ross Jelgerhuis, who would love to help you get connected to a group.


Who goes to a Community Group?

Our groups are mixed with different ages as well as stations in life. We have single people along with couples, parents with their children, as well as those who have never had children. Our groups are a place to make friends and to help one another grow in relationship with God, and there is no pressure to continue to visit one group. We encourage you to visit several until you find one that fits you well.
