Encounter Groups


One of the ancient Hebrew proverbs reminds us that…

“As iron sharpens iron, so does one person sharpen another.”

That was true then, and it is still true today. We benefit from being connected to one another. Meeting with others to study scripture, pray with, and encourage one another, is fuel for walking obediently with Christ.

In addition to our Sunday Services at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., Encounter provides Weekly Small Groups and One to One Discipleship throughout the week.
