Branches is the name of our small group ministry. We believe that life is better enjoyed and weathered when we come together in smaller community. We practice the rhythms of in/out/up as we participate in our groups. IN refers to the relationships between our group members. We believe that safety is born out of trust, and so we develop bonds with one another so we can share the good and bad in our lives. OUT refers to how we are interacting with our community. We love being together and want to invite others to experience the goodness of God and the joy of relationships. UP is the focus on our relationship with God and our own spiritual journey. We can study together, pray together, and seek understanding together in our Branch, and we have experienced the difference that can make in our lives!
Currently, we have two different Branches gathering, and you are invited to check out either or both!
