Our discipleship ministries encourage and enable ongoing life transformation through Christ-centered fellowship and the study of God’s Word.

At the core of our discipleship efforts are small groups that meet regularly for Bible study, fellowship, prayer, and volunteer work. With a variety of options to choose from, we have a group for everyone who is ready to grow in his or her faith.

Our Minister of Discipleship, David Holcomb, publishes daily content to the Discipleship Ministries Facebook Page to help you grow in your faith.


Small Groups

A Small Group offers a safe place where 8-14 adults can know God better and love Him more through regular fellowship, Bible study, service, and prayer.

It is an environment where individuals are known, cared for, and encouraged in their relationship with God. Groups are ultimately about spiritual growth. We believe that a Christ-centered small group environment is a great place for individuals to build relationships with one another and grow in their faith together.




Leader's Dinner

Join in the fellowship of discipleship group leaders over a wonderful meal, then engage in an overview of the upcoming winter sermon series and small group study (including a somewhat different approach to curriculum and subject matter).  This will be an evening of connecting and equipping, while sharing in the appreciation of your faithfulness to making disciples. It is a privilege to lock arms with each of you. I look forward to our time together.

Financial Peace University

"We spend our time buying things we don't need, with money we don't have, trying to impress people we don't know; the definition of insanity" - Dave Ramsey.
