These are small groups which meet regularly because of a common interest or goal. Groups can be formed for spiritual purposes, for fun, to address common life issues. Members agree to attend regularly, to be respectful and supportive of each other, and to work together in some way to provide service to the church and larger community. Some of the groups meet at the church, others at a member’s home. There is always an “open chair” for anyone who wants to see what the group is like. Because these are small groups, last minute cancellations or changes can occur. Please contact the facilitator if you plan to come — no one will mind if you come without notice, but you might not know if there has been a change in the meeting time or place.
