Belong


Belong-logo
–  BELONG 

We want to help everyone to connect with Christ and other believers in open, authentic relationships through which we grow stronger in our faith and learn to love others. While our faith is very personal, it is not meant to be private. It is lived out within the context of a healthy faith community where we listen well and speak the truth in love. Here we both give and receive encouragement, accountability, and care.

When it comes to building friendships and growing closer to God, circles are better than rows! Find a place of belonging in Home 2 Home, Men 2 Men, or Women 2 Women for a small group experience of connecting, caring, learning and laughing together.

H2H groups are composed of couples, singles or a combination of both–anywhere from six to twelve adults. Most commonly the people within a group are in a similar age group or life circumstances, while others are more diverse. Groups usually meet in homes on an afternoon or evening on a weekly basis, where they enjoy casual conversation, a guided biblical discussion, food, laughter and praying together.
