New Affinity Groups
We are launching our next round of Affinity Groups! Affinity Groups are groups that gather around a mutual interest (ex: Bible study, crafts, playing golf, volunteering together) for the purpose of strengthening relationships among our church family. You can be connected with an Affinity Group by filling out this form.

Starting a FELLOWSHIP/Affinity Group

Our church is proud to offer a variety of fellowship/affinity groups for adults who attend our church. Our members are empowered to start something new when they have an idea or see a need to be filled. And all our fellowship/affinity opportunities are supported by program staff and by our Discipleship Ministries Team. So, if you're interested in starting a new  fellowship/affinity group please contact Angelina Goldwell with your idea. We can't wait to hear it!
