"And what does the Lord require of you? But to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
This verse is the guiding principle of our church. We are striving together to learn what it means to DO JUSTICE, LOVE MERCY, and WALK HUMBLY with our God. This cannot be accomplished alone, rather, only in the circles of community can we discover how to truly live out this command.
Meeting September - May
It can be easy to get lost in the crowd. But, we were created to to be intimately known. It's in relationship with others that God often speaks to our hearts. By joining a small group community, you'll learn to WALK HUMBLY along your journey with Christ.
Small Groups meet from September through May. You can join a group at any time through the year. Groups are composed of 10-15 people and meet at a variety of times and locations throughout the city.
Life is better in circles than in rows.
