Why Small Groups?

Following Jesus is not something we can do on our own.  Like Jesus’s first disciples, we are called to gather and journey together in small groups as we strive to follow Jesus more closely.  We offer three types of small groups, including groups specifically for first-year students and a new Guys Group for both first-years and upperclassmen.  You are welcome to any of these groups at any point during the year!
