Encounter Communities

Stay Connected

Check out Our Encounter Communities.

Encounter Communities have a simple purpose to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in community and that life-change happens in Encounter Communities. Meaningful relationships can be hard to find, but Encounter Communities exist to make life-changing relationships accessible and to help people grow in their faith and build a stronger church. Our meetings take place throughout the week in different neighborhoods, so fill out our Winter Registration Form to let us know which community is right for you!
