Get Connected in Community
We believe in the power of small groups to impact your life, the lives of those around you, and even our town as a whole. We believe you can only go so far on your own— God designed us to be connected to each other so that we can continue to grow in every facet of our lives.
We make a big push to launch new groups and encourage everyone in our church to join a group each year in January and August at GroupLink. Grouplink is an event where you can meet people in a similar stage of life and area of town with the goal of forming a Community Group. A host and plenty of staff members and volunteers will be on hand to help you navigate the process of meeting others and forming a group. The main categories for groups are Couples, Women's, Men's, Premarital, Young Adults and Care.

The next Grouplink event will be held in August 2018.
What if I can't attend GroupLink?
If any of the groups that form at GroupLink aren’t full, we’d love to help you get connected. Let us know that you can't make it and we will email you when online groups open. We’ll post a list of groups with openings a couple days after the event. If one of the groups matches your stage of life and area of town, and is meeting on a night of the week that works for you, sign up online.
Open group listings are active for 2–3 weeks after GroupLink. Openings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
What is the difference between GroupLink and a community group?
You go to GroupLink to join a Community Group. Community Groups are small groups of six married couples or eight individuals of the same gender that meet weekly in someone’s home or church facilities for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
Is childcare provided at GroupLink?
Childcare is not provided, but we do reimburse (at a predetermined rate) for babysitters needed in order to attend a GroupLink event. Childcare reimbursement forms are provided at GroupLink.
is childcare provided for community groups?
We want to create a comfortable environment for groups that is free of distractions, so normally children may not be present at Community Group meetings. We provide childcare reimbursements so that participants and leaders can utilize childcare during group meetings; however, you are responsible for making your own childcare arrangements.
Are there more opportunities to join a group besides at a GroupLink?
In addition to our Community Groups, we do offer Short-term Groups that meet for 6-8 weeks. Watch our Events page or give us a call at 520-393-6280 for more information on upcoming Short-term groups.
