Join A Group

Groups are where we grow in our faith together while building meaningful relationships. There is a place for you here!

Fill out the Group Interest Form so we can help you find a group that’s right for you:

The ROOTED Experience

ROOTED is a ten-week small group experience that is a great first step toward joining a Life Group. You’ll explore God’s Word, participate in prayer and serve experiences, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. 

Our next ROOTED Experience begins in 2023. More information to come!

Life Groups

A Life Group is a small group of people intentionally seeking spiritual growth through ongoing community with others.  Intentional discipleship, accountability, and care for one another’s needs are key aspects of a Life Group.   

Life Groups typically meet in a home to study the Bible, pray, and offer support as we grow closer to God and each other.

Equipping Classes

Equipping Classes meet for a season to pursue a specific topic, study, or activity to equip you with the tools you need in this ever-changing world. They’re a great way to build community as you connect, learn, and grow with others. Join anytime!

Common Threads Life Group

September 21 – December 21 (Bi-Weekly)

Our group is made up of couples who are ” in transition” toward an empty nest or have already arrived at that life stage.  If you have older children leaving for/already in college or you already have a quiet home and adult children, we can relate.

Currently we don’t have a set schedule for getting together for social/study times.  We typically have done study evenings a few times per month on Wednesday and social outings/meals on Saturdays every few months.  We rotate meeting in different homes as well as rotate study responsibilities as individuals feel comfortable.   Our two families reside in Eastgate and Dillonvale.

Once we have couples that would like to join the group, we can set the schedule of meeting days and locations.  This registration is set up for Wednesdays but we could change that based on the needs of the group.
