radiate small groups

Why join a small group or Bible Study? It's about connecting. 

While our decision to follow Jesus is personal, it is not meant to be a private activity. We are created to be relational and to share our lives with one another. Our hope is that you may find a group listed here that you will be excited to join so that you may grow closer to Jesus and grow closer to others. 

Many small groups are on hiatus during the late spring and summer months, 

so check out the link provided to see the details for each group! 

  • In this study, Desiring God, John Piper explains how the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever." 

    Drawing upon scriptures, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God, and how God is ready to pursue with all His might our pleasure in Hi. The implications of this truth are discussed in regard to conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions and suffering.
