Small Groups

Beauty at the Table Small Groups: God made us for community – to be in relationship together, to break bread and share our stories with one another.  As we begin the year 2020, we will gather for four weeks to give thanks for God in our lives, God in our church, and God in our world.  We will give witness to the beauty that surrounds us at all times and in all places.  Come join us to connect deeper with one another and to grow closer to our God. Please review the available schedule below, and email with link provided therein to be registered into the group of your choosing.
