Whether you attend a small group every year, or this is your first time ever, EVERYONE is welcome! We believe that being part of a small group is SO MUCH MORE than attending a meeting. It is an opportunity to KNOW, LOVE, and SERVE. Small groups provide a way to live UNITED and to pray for each other. It is a group to do life with, ask the hard questions, and SHARPEN OUR FAITH. It is worth the investment!

A Way Forward Conversation
Coming in March, 2018 - Bishop Tracy S. Malone reminds us that, “The unity of the Church is all of our work to do. The unity of the Church is all of our conversations to have.” Join Pastors Cara and Steve as we engage in intentional, meaningful conference-wide conversations about our identity, purpose, and mission as a Church as we think about the challenges that our differences around human sexuality present us at this time in The United Methodist Church.
