Small Groups

Small Groups

Small Groups are how we make our community thrive and grow outside of Sunday morning. We meet in homes, often gather around a shared meal or snack, spend time in the Word and in prayer and focus on fellowship with each other. Each group has its own distinct flavor, and is led by a team of PT Partners who are trained in Small Group leadership. We encourage you to join us at any time, although groups generally take a break during the summer.

OPEN TO: Families

We welcome all families – in all shapes and sizes – to a time of fellowship and fun. We meet three Sundays a month after the first service to share a meal, pray for one another and delve into the Bible. Once a month we have a fun family activity where parents and children can participate together. We will provide childcare for remaining two weeks of each month for parents of young children (parents using this service will have to pitch in to pay for the sitter). While the parents are meeting, the tweens and teens will gather for their own time of fellowship.



Hearts and Hands Together

OPEN TO: All adults welcome

Our group uses knitting as a foundational metaphor for how we learn about Jesus together, and then share what we’ve learned. The only prerequisite is that you be patient and teachable. Each week a different guest is asked to bring a treat to share with the group. Once you join the group you will be provided with a basic knitting supplies list.
