Care Groups

Care Groups

We believe that community is essential for the healthy, growing Christian. Each week, we have many different opportunities for you to join in community with other believers for spiritual growth, care, friendship and accountability.

Care Groups will be featured on our EVENTS feed and are subject to change. Please contact the Care Group leader for specific dates.

Celebrate Recovery
If you want freedom from life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits we encourage you to check out Celebrate Recovery on Friday Nights at 6:00 pm in the Gathering Room (under the Welcome Center).
 CR seeks to celebrate God’s healing and redemptive power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles” and 12 Steps that Celebrate Recovery is based on.  
We invite you to use CR to experience change, allow God’s grace to help you solve life’s problems, and allow Him to release you from the hurts, hang-ups and habits that have been holding you back from authentic joy in your life.

Fight Club
Fight Club is a men’s discipleship resource developed by men, for men, to reach men-to turn the tide on mediocrity. Men will be encouraged to live intentionally and grow in four core areas: spiritually, relational, physically and nutritionally. You will see immediate impact on the man daring to take this journey. This challenge is not your typical discipleship program. Get ready for real community, real discipleship and real accountability…and fun fellowship along the way.
Meets every other Sunday after church in the Gather Room.
