Discover Groups

In times of need and times of fun, Discover Groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Discover Groups operate on semester system, and the fall session starts September 11th. These groups offer an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. The groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or other locations throughout the city. All of our groups change and begin again throughout the year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. If you are interested in hosting or leading a group, CONTACT US so we can help you get started. You’ll never fully experience all that Discover Family Church has to offer until you connect in a Discover Group!

Thursday Throwback features a revisit of the previous Sunday’s message. We add a little spice in terms of tying it to the message of grace and the gospel. We believe that every ounce of God’s Word points to Jesus, and the redemptive life it provides for all mankind. We have chosen to be a year around group that welcomes all to our house for refreshments and  a snack. Our special phrase is “we begin at 7, but friends are welcome at 6:30.” Come and join us. P.S. You are a friend!
