We believe circles are better than rows. When we move into circles, we get to build relationships on a deeper level, ask questions, explore faith, and show up for each other in significant ways.
We organize small groups by semester with new groups forming in January and August each year. Some groups opt to stay together for more than one semester, and others move around. We have groups for men, women, couples, and co-ed.
We believe in celebrating as people take next steps in their walk with God. And you may have heard, there’s no party like an Ashley Ridge Church party! When kids, students, and adults get baptized, we celebrate the gift of new life and grace, and we celebrate bold decisions to claim Jesus as Lord.
Jesus told his followers to go and find the next person and teach them to follow too, and then the next person, and the next person. We believe our best opportunity to grow in our faith and be part of what God is doing in the world is by serving others.
Starting Point is a 10-week small group for those who are new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away. It’s a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off-limits.
