Join in community!

Our groups are encouraging mini-communities where you can study and discuss God’s Word, grow spiritually and relationally, and live out what it means to love one another. We have two types of groups; small groups and discipleship groups (D-groups for short).

GC2 Small Groups are geared toward fellowship and mutual encouragement from each other and the word of God. The groups are always open for new attendees and require little to no preparation before the group meetings. For location information not listed below, please contact the Church Office.

GC2 D-groups are geared toward more purposeful discipleship in the word of God and accountability with the other D-group members. D-groups are limited to 5 members max. They have designated sign-up and start times quarterly and are closed after the sign-up times. D-groups will be following the church Bible reading and require preparation on the part of D-group members prior to each meeting. If you are interested in joining or leading a D-group, please contact Pastor Luke.
