CONNECT through SMALL GROUPS
Everyone needs connection, and small groups are a great way to make new connections.

We have many kinds of small groups, and we're always open to starting new ones.
We think of our groups in 3 different categories:
Drop-In Groups, Some Structure Groups, and High Commitment Groups. 

Looking for some easygoing conversation? These are a good place to meet others.

 

Newcomers are expected and welcome at "Drop-In" groups. There's nothing to prepare; no RSVP needed.

Just come!

Drop-In Groups

Do you love a good book study? Like to know what the topic will be?   

 "Some Structure" Groups usually use a book or other material to focus the conversation. Some groups read the material during group, others read ahead on a schedule. 

"Some Structure"

Ready to go deeper?
High Commitment groups have a clear format and agree upon how they want to use their time together. In order to grow spiritually, develop trust, and be vulnerable with one another, members in these groups agree to be there for one another and stay focused on their practice.
