Living as a Family of Disciples on Mission

our dream

Our dream is that every adult finds a circle of people where they can grow relationally, spiritually and missionally

What can I Expect?

Relational, Spiritual and Missional Spaces

When you join a group, you can expect a relational environment offering helpful conversations about life and faith. None of us have life or faith figured out, but together we can share our insights and stories to help us understand better who Jesus is, who we are and how we can share Him with others.

We offer a variety of groups — Rooted, Life Groups, Term Groups and Serving Groups. All of these are environments crafted for people like you and led by people like you.

  • Rooted meets weekly at Ridge Point, lasts 10 weeks, costs $30 ($55 for couples) and includes childcare
  • Life Groups meet where and when they choose, and childcare is determined by each group
  • Term Groups like Divorce care, Grief Share and Financial Peace University meet for several weeks, exploring a specific topic or range of topics
  • Serve Groups meet as needed and focus on serving inside and outside the church

In all our groups, you’ll find space to ask questions about life and faith, share opportunities to give and receive care, and use your experiences and giftedness to share Jesus with others. Contact to find your place in a group. We have a space for you!
