COMMUNITY GROUPS

We all need a place where everybody knows our name. We were designed for relationship and we want everyone at EvFree to find the place where they can be known.

Small Life Groups (12–15 people) meet in homes during the week.

Adult Fellowships are larger Community Groups. They are caring communities of 40–120 people who meet Sunday mornings to strengthen and challenge one another to reflect the character of and participate in the mission of Jesus. Try several, as they are all different, and see which one is the place where you belong.

Once you try an Adult Fellowship, would you please give us your feedback on the experience here?

Get involved in a Community Group by filling out Connect Card.

Questions? Contact Katie Potesta or Marianne Werschke.
