Why should you join a group?

In times of need and times of fun, Grace small groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that Grace has to offer until you connect in a small group! Join a group anytime!
