Groups and Bible Studies



A path of discipleship sets out a life-long journey of growth and maturing as a follower of Jesus through a set of practices that draw us more deeply into the heart of God and community and back out into the world. A path of discipleship is both individual and community-oriented and offers practices differentiated along a path of growing faith. Consider joining one of our groups or Bible studies.
