Groups serve to deepen discipleship and community in the Church! Friendships are built and faith grows when we gather together to share about life and pursuing Christ. Our hope is that each person in our church will engage in authentic Christian community and grow as disciples of Jesus through groups at Orchard Hill.
Check out the following groups, launching this winter at Orchard Hill! To sign up for a group or to get more details, visit the GROUP UP table in the lobby, orchardhill.org/groups, or the group feature on Church Center, anytime in January. Have questions or need help getting connected? Email Pastor Laura Dilley: email@example.com.
