The first thing Jesus did when he began His ministry was to form a small group. He gathered twelve men around Him for support, training and encouragement. Our small groups are based on the principles of caring, sharing and study and we meet to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the Bible and Christianity
  • Build lasting friendships in a relaxed setting
  • Provide support and care for one another
  • Practice and experience the power of prayer

Covenant Bible Studies

Covenant Bible Study guides small groups through a comprehensive, in-depth study of the whole Bible over twenty-four sessions broken into three eight-session modules: Creating, Living, and Trusting. This study underscores the unique relationship that God chooses to have with us as God's people. We'll begin this study at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 7. Cost for the three-book study guide is $33.00. Visit for an introductory video.


What are the Disciple Bible Studies? Disciple Bible Studies are designed to grow Disciples for Jesus Christ. Participants grow meaningful relationships in a small group setting designed to make Bible study fun, informative, and purposeful.

Short Term Disciple Bible Studies focus on smaller Bible sections, and each study lasts 8-11 weeks.  This fall we are offering two classes using the short-term study on the book of Genesis: Wednesday mornings at 9 AM beginning September 6, and Sunday evenings at 6:30 PM beginning September 10.
