Our Heart

Becoming Groups strengthen our becoming journey through deeper connection as we pursue God, love with His heart and serve one another into greatness.

About Becoming Groups

Becoming Groups serve as a place for our church body to gather outside of our normal Sunday and Tuesday services to seek the Lord–deepening our walk–and to connect deeply with one another.

All of our groups gather to discuss the content of the previous Sunday’s sermon. During this season of shelter in place, all our groups are meeting online.

Group Types

We have several types of groups available, including:

Men’s Groups | Women’s Groups

Marrieds Groups | Single Moms Group

Open Adult Groups are mixed groups of men and women ages 20 and up.

C1/10 Groups are open to 30s + 40s.

Advance Young Adult Groups are for college aged and young professionals in their 20s.
