LifeGroups are people taking next steps together. Join a Group and you'll learn why we believe you can’t do life alone.

Join a starting point group

Everything has a starting point—life, relationships, education, career. But sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well. By the time we’re adults, most of us have made up our minds about faith. But the faith we form or inherit when we’re young doesn’t always stand up to the pressures of life. What if it were possible to explore faith freely and ask the questions we all have. What if it were possible to wipe the slate clean and work together to find a new starting point for faith? 

STARTING POINT is an 8-week small group where you can discuss the questions or concerns you have about faith. Starting Point will meet Sundays during the 11am service time. To learn more, watch the video, fill out the form below and we'll be in touch.

Starting point is a new, short-term group that is for anyone wanting to take the next step in growing in their faith. Whether you've been gone from church for awhile and are returning, a new believer, someone with questions, or someone that is wanting to take a step deeper, this group is for you. 

The group meets Sundays at 11am at the Ridge campus and is open to only 10 people. The group begins meeting October 22nd. If you're interested, please fill out the adjacent form. 

what to expect

The goal of joining a group is to grow in your walk with Jesus around people that can support you in taking your next steps. We believe life is better when you live in community. 

Life groups meet during the week in various places all over our area and in others homes. We have groups the meet online, at the church, in homes, and in coffee shops. We have groups that are for women only, men only, couples, singles, empty nesters and students. 

  This is a great place to connect to other people, build friendships, grow in your relationship with Christ, and serve our community in a smaller setting. We have many existing groups and new groups forming all the time.

Not all groups offer childcare, however some do. Some groups have paid-for-childcare provided. Other groups with older kids have things that the kids do during group time. 

When you sign up for a group, let them know you would like to have a group where childcare is provided and we will do our best to point you in the direction for groups that meet your needs. 


Groups literally meet all over the city of Oak Ridge, as well as in other parts of our area and other cities. Many of our groups meet in homes, but some meet at the church or in coffee shops around the city.
