About Becoming Groups
Becoming Groups serve as a place for our church body to gather outside of our Sunday and Tuesday services to seek the Lord–deepening our walk–and to connect deeply with one another.
This season, groups will gather to discuss the content of the previous Sunday’s sermon, while others will be going through a Bible study, or DNA of a Leader.
We have several types of groups available, including:
Advance Young Adults | College aged and young professionals in their 20’s
Open Adults Groups | Mixed groups for men and women ages 20 and up
DNA of a Leader

His heart for Becoming Groups is to see people connect to the body of Christ in a deeper way, as they intentionally build relationships with a small group of people. He loves the ability to pray and speak life into others in a meaningful way through Becoming Groups. Especially in this season, he sees Becoming Groups as a vital way for others to remain connected and full of the hope of Christ.
