Get Involved at Discovery!


Current Small Groups Series

Are you ready to grow in your faith? We believe that spiritual growth is most effective while in community and that spiritually nurturing relationships leads to belonging.  Three times a year we will organize and encourage you to participate in a small group that runs for 4 to 8 weeks. Here is our current small group information:

Currently, we have no sermon based small groups on during the summer months. Check back for more information in September about our next series, You Drive Me Crazy!!!

Please email if you are interested in signing up to lead or host a group, or to participate in a group.
