The person who loves their dream of community will destroy community, but the person who loves those around them will create community.
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together

One of the key ways that we connect with one another is by getting involved in a smaller community of Christians. Here we live life with one another and see how the gospel of Jesus Christ applies to our lives in the seemingly small and mundane ways. These groups provide opportunity to study scripture, pray, and fellowship with one another.
