Life is not meant to be lived alone. You were created to experience life with others. Fellowship and interest groups are a community experience of three or more people who gather at the church, in a home or other location. In a small group you’ll hang out and enjoy similar interests, from following your favorite sports team, having a game night, dining out…whatever interest you have. Below you will see a list of groups that are already formed and meeting regularly or search for more interest groups here.
Another way to experience an Interest Group is to start one of your own. To be a Host, you need to:
- Have a heart for others
- Be willing to open your home or arrange other location
- Be ready to create lasting friendships
It’s simple and we’re here to help. If you would like to host an Interest Group, designate your interest and register here. We will do the rest.
