The purpose of Creekside Groups are centered around:

CONNECTING with others | Moving beyond Sunday courtesies to sharing life together

GROWING together in Jesus | Growing beyond information to transformation in life and thinking

DOING LIFE together | God designed us for relationship


We have a variety of small groups that are created around connecting with people who share similar interests or life experiences, are at the same stage of life, or want to grow in a certain area.
