We believe God created each of us to be in authentic community with one another and that discipleship and spiritual growth happen best in smaller groups. Being part of a small group at Grace means wrestling together with the Bible, sharing our stories (the highs and lows), praying together, and sharing meals and fellowship.

Our goal is that everyone who calls Grace home would be connected in a small group. If you are not in a Grace group, then you are not experiencing all the God has for you at Grace.

So we encourage everyone to read through the small-group choices for spring and summer 2018 listed below and contact the leader of the group that interests you the most.
