An inclusive, justice-seeking church

Small Groups

If you are looking for small group fellowship, we have a variety of options for you, from contemplative prayer to young adults to women’s bible study to a parents’ group. In addition, if you would like to be part of a book group or bible study, contact Rev. Linda Lader at, and she and the Nurture Committee will work with you to find a group … or help you form a new one.
