Register for Fall Renew Groups
Our Renew Groups are small groups that meet regularly where we encourage one another, study God’s Word together and find ways to reach out to the community as the hands and feet of Jesus. Learn about the various groups—women’s, men’s, and co-ed—and find your place in Renew. Sign up below or contact Cheryl Mullis if you have questions.
