What is a Friends Group?

A Friends Group consists of 3 to 12 people who meet intentionally to pursue spiritual growth, friendship, and support. Friends Groups provide a safe place to study the Bible, ask all the questions you have, get answers, and be encouraged along the way. Friends Groups meet biweekly or more each month, although meeting weekly is most common. Groups gather together in a home, at the church, and online via Zoom. Life is truly better with friends! Come experience one of our Friends Groups.
