Small Groups

We believe that participating in small groups is a huge catalyst for God to work in our lives.


Killing Kryptonite Group

Tuesday Nights | 7-9pm

January - April

This group will be reading John Bevere’s book, Killing Kryptonite and watching his DVD teaching in parts each week. In Killing Kryptonite, John Bevere reveals what this kryptonite is, why it’s compromising our communities, and how to break free from its bondage. Not for the faint of heart, Killing Kryptonite is anything but a spiritual sugar high. This is serious truth for any Christ-follower who longs to embrace the challenging but rewarding path of transformation. Book Cost: $14

Starts February 12

Leaders: Jeff & Beth Rech | Co-leaders: AJ & Kristy Nickols
