“People come to church longing for, yearning for, hoping for … a sense of roots, place, belonging, sharing and caring. People come to a church with a search for community, not committee.” — Glenn Turner

Affinity Groups are groups that gather within the congregation based on affinities of identity or interest. The Small Group Ministry program deepens and broadens personal spiritual growth. A group usually consists of 8-10 members who meet once or twice a month. Each meeting is focused on a spiritual or religious topic.
Each group below has a volunteer convener who organizes meetings and outings, with the assistance of others in the group. The link for each group takes you to contact information to connect with the group. The convener will make sure you receive notices of upcoming events for the group.
Groups generally meet on a fixed schedule but sometimes things change. See our calendar for information on upcoming events.
