God created and redeemed us for community - to live the Christian life together. In Hebrews 10:24-25, we are urged to “consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another…” In John 13:35, Jesus said others would know His disciples by how we love one another.
Our Small Groups - Sunday School Classes, Bible Study Groups, as well as Community Groups - foster deep relationships where we can grow in Christ together. They not only equip us to know God through His Word, but encourage us to share His Gospel so that others might come to know Him too.

Women's Study - Elijah with Pricilla Shirer
When: Wednesdays beginning September 15th at 9:30am (7 weeks)
Where: Room 204 or via Zoom
Elijah emerged as the voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decline. His ministry was marked by tenacious faith and holy fire - the same kind we will need in order to remain steadfast in our current culture. Join us as Pricilla Shirer takes a fresh look at Elijah and the difficult choices of obedience that kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact and invited heaven's fire to fall. Contact Shari Penland or Judy Howell for more information and to register.
Sunday Morning Bible Study - Jesus in Me by Ann Graham Lotz
When: Sunday Mornings at 10:30am
Where: Room 108
"Do you want to experience who the Holy Spirit is and enjoy a deeper a connection to Him? As Anne writes, 'One of my deepest, richest joys has been discovering by experience who the Holy Spirit is in every step of my life's journey. Each name that He has been given - Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby - reveals another aspect of His beautiful character and has provoked in me a deep love for the One who is my constant Companion... Jesus in me.'
All are welcome to come and discover how to better love and rely on the Person of the Holy Spirit - and embrace how much he loves you."
Here is a link to the study. Contact Kelly Farley, the study facilitator, for more information.
