God’s Design

We are not meant to follow Jesus alone. God’s good design was for us to glorify him and to live and thrive in community. From the Garden of Eden to the Garden of Gethsemane, God has been putting people together to accomplish his plan in their life.

Following the Son

To God’s design, we follow Jesus’ example in pursuit of his great commission to make disciples. A disciple is someone active within a believing community in self-pursuit of their relationship with Jesus, obedient to the Spirit, unified, and reproducing. Gathering in smaller groups is ideal for real discipleship and community to take place.

Will You Join Us?

Join us for the Fall semester of LifeGroups. If you’d like to join a group email our Pastor of Discipleship, Ken Blackwell, at We’d be happy to help you and your family find a life group. See all of the groups available this Fall below.

LifeGroups are communities where people endeavor to follow Jesus together in becoming and making disciples.
