Groups are the back bone of Orchard Hill Church fellowship and discipleship. As we grow larger, our groups become more important to connect us to one another, to grow the faith we profess, and to care for each other when crisis hits home.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.

Groups at Orchard Hill have open registration every January and September, but if you join us in a different month, we can still get you connected! We have a group for everyone, from young adults to those in their seasoned years! If you are ready to take this next step on your faith journey, contact Pastor Laura Dilley at to find a group for you! We would love to help you get settled into deeper community, here at Orchard Hill Church!
