Q + A

You have questions. We have answers.

These groups (anywhere from 3-20 people) meet on our campus here at 2526 Lebanon Pike in Nashville. You can expect a mix of teaching + discussion when you visit!

A Home Group is any group (typically 6-12 people) that meets off-campus. No need to worry about "fitting in"- these groups are not topically driven or gender/age specific!

We believe that real life change happens when we do life together. Life Groups and Home Groups are designed to be an avenue of support, encouragement, and growth for believers and those seeking to learn more about who Jesus is. 

It depends! We have Life Groups and Home groups that meet weekly, biweekly, and monthly. There's a group for whatever your schedule allows!

WE LOVE KIDS! That's why we have Life Groups for our pre-kindergarten kids to our 12th grade students. And when it comes to Home Groups, bring them along!

Feel free to reach out to a LG or HG leader (info provided below) to get details on their group and the next meeting! Or, if you'd like some help finding your niche, call the church office at 615.883.2339. We'd love to get you plugged in!
