COMMUNITY GROUP MINISTRY
Pastor Samuel Ha oversees a team of small group leaders (see our Community page) committed to knowing God's truth more deeply and helping others know it, too, in a welcoming and non-judgemental environment. These leaders facilitate group conversations about the Bible, considering how and why it is important to everyone. The groups are more than discussion meetings, however, as group members pray and socialize together, seeking to build meaningful friendships.
The small groups ranges from 5-20 people from all over the world and at different stages of life, and are open to both Christians and those interested in Christianity.
Our community groups meet throughout the week in various locations and times.
