Even though you’ll find that our weekly Sunday morning celebrations are a great opportunity to meet many warm and friendly people, the best place to forge friendships and experience Genuine Christian Community (GCC) is during the week in our Connect Groups. These groups are where you’ll find friendship, support, encouragement, love and prayer.
Some groups are on a break for summer, Feel free to contact a CG leader to see if their group is meeting or having summer activities.
Also visit upcoming events and Fridays in the Park starting June 15
For more information about a group, please complete the contact form below or give a CG leader a phone call.

We are a group of young people led by the “young at heart” and the Holy Spirit. We value genuinely connecting with each other and building authentic, meaningful relationships by creating a safe place for fun and open (and frequently hilarious) discussions, encouraging and praying for one another, listening for the Lord and the voice of each person present, whether you’re a regular, or it’s your first time.
