God graciously grafts us into his family through Jesus. Now, as his sons and daughters, we have the privilege of cultivating and nurturing that relationship by the Spirit. Our prayer is for you to connect with God and his people as you mature with a growth that is from Him.


Many of the things that Jesus calls us too as a church simply can’t happen on Sunday mornings. Our desire is to be invested in each other’s live and to encourage spiritual growth in the midst of our day-to-day challenges. To that end, we have a variety of groups that meet during the week in homes to provide an opportunity to connect in deeper relationship, discuss the implications of the Gospel in our lives, and pray for one another.


Christ Church’s groups are organized by geography and topic. Each group has roughly 8-15 participants and meets for about 90 minutes. Please check out the list below for a group near you. To learn more please contact a group leader below.
