Community Groups

An intentional gathering of 3-15 people who agree to share life together. They plan where and when to meet and arrange their schedules to be there for the purpose of being together and being formed as Christ’s disciples. They work together to live out their “sent-ness” into the world. Community Groups love God and love each other.

Seminars and group discussion on the fundamentals of faith.

We all wonder. Maybe you or a friend are curious about the Christian faith. What do Christians believe? What’s the deal with the Bible? In Alpha we gather each week for 8 weeks to share a meal, listen to a talk, and discuss questions like these. If you’re interested in learning more about Christianity join us for Alpha!

Pubology is all about public conversations on deep stuff.

Once a month we reserve a room at “The Original Cottage Inn,” grab a beer, a slice of pizza and listen to an expert present on an important cultural question. Following the presentation there’s a Q and A with the presenter and discussions at our table. If you want a safe and thoughtful way to engage the public conversations of our day join us for Pubology!
