It is impossible to walk with Christ alone. God has designed us to need community. Not only do we need community with Him, but we also need healthy community with other people who are seeking to grow in Him. That’s where Gathering Groups come in.

A Gathering Group is not a collection of perfect people who have life figured out. It is for those of us who still need to grow, who need a place to ask questions, and who need others to help us when we falter. It is a great place to learn together what it means to follow Christ, to study the Scriptures, to love our neighbors, to care for the oppressed, and to build lasting relationships.

Currently we have 16 groups in the Fort Walton Beach and surrounding areas. Groups take periodic breaks or nights off, so please contact a leader by email or phone before arriving.
