"Where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." — Jesus of Nazareth


OUR COMMUNITY GROUPS

As a means of being a local and personal community of faith, we have a unique and increasing mix of groups that meet on Daniel Island and beyond. We invite you to find a group with whom you and yours can gather, grow and go on your faith journey. A simple sign-up form is located at the bottom of this page.


(Most of our community groups take a break for the summer and relaunch in the fall.)
