Because of our need for fellowship and intimate relationships with other Christians, we have divided our Student Ministry into small groups by grade and gender.  Small groups are designed to implement the in-depth teaching of our Grounded for Life Discipleship Plan .  Small groups are a great way to connect with others, talk about God’s Word, have fun, and learn truth to be well equipped for living life well.  Most High School Small groups meet on Sunday night from 5:00 – 7:00.  (Senior Small Group meets from 6:30 - 8:30.)
