Small Groups

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.

We want everyone who calls Grace their church home to be connected in a small group. If you are not in a Grace group, then you are not experiencing all that God has for you at Grace.  In these groups we hope you’ll meet people who become great friends!  We hope you will share your stories, develop a deepening knowledge and desire for God’s word, pray and laugh together, and walk through life together.

Here is a list of our current Small Groups.  Please email the leader of the group you’d like more information about.  If you’d like assistance selecting a Small Group, please email Pastor Nate at
