Small Groups and Classes

Small Groups

Since each of us is moving on a continuum of faith – from curious and cautious to totally in love with our Creator and the new life given through Christ – there are different small groups to meet different needs.  The main question to ask is: what type of small group would motivate me to rearrange my schedule?

Do you need:

  • Encouragement from others who are in a similar life stage?
  • Deeper Christian friendships that provide accountability?
  • Support through a life transition or difficult season of life?
  • People who will encourage you to live out your faith at work?
  • A group with whom to pray and play?

To find a small group that is right for you, call our church office to arrange a connection conversation to help you find a great small group fit, (970) 482-6107.

Gifted in Leadership?  Small group leader positions are open to all church members who have the gift of leadership and a passion for serving as a small group facilitator. If this is a place where you’d like to serve, please contact Ron Sisk, Center Leader for Discipleship and Spiritual Formation.
