Each Sunday afternoon and evening, our oikos groups meet throughout the area.
These small, multi-generational groups exist to help us develop Christ-likeness
and Christian community in a seven day a week “real world” context. As our
church continually strives to develop our identity as followers of Jesus, partners
in Kingdom, and voices of Unity, oikos helps us put rubber to road.
We would like to invite every member to participate in oikos, and we extend an
Worship: 10:20am
