What to Expect

We believe that a small group environment is the best place to form the relationships that lead to community. Relationships and community can help us grow and lead to positive life change! 

A NEXT Group is a place where you can be yourself, have fun, ask the tough questions, and take steps toward Jesus with a group of friends facing the same joys, frustrations, and challenges in life. Come, perhaps enjoy a simple meal, do life together with friends, and, together, let's discover how what we learn in the Bible can help us enjoy a more fulfilling life!

Brief descriptions of our current groups are provided below. Click on the link to sign up for the group that seems like a good fit for you and someone from that group will be in touch to help you get connected. We look forward to seeing you in a NEXTGroup soon!
