You can find a place to belong no matter what age you are! We have groups for college age, men, women, families, Spanish-speakers, those with disabilities, single moms, senior adults, and more!

We also have classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights where you can learn more about God as well as a variety of other topics and get connected with other people!



If your family isn’t perfect, you are in good company. Truth be told, there are no ideal families - just real families. Have you noticed Jesus’ family tree? It contains polygamist, adulterers, prostitutes, and murders to name a few. That might make your family reunion suddenly feel a little tame. 

Here’s what’s amazing, God uses these family members and others that are scarred, scared, and sad. God has helped so many of us through struggles in order to rediscover blessing and joy. God seeks to use our families to find our identity and purpose in Jesus.

The Family Ministry wants to help provide the tools and people resources to nurture marriages, develop deep relationships and friendships, learn scriptural principals for family life, lean hard and fast on a loving God, and lead children in a relationship with Jesus. We seek to be a ministry that helps families pursue and lay these foundation building blocks.

What do we mean by "small group"? How do you join a small group? Find out more here.

The church is a community of committed disciples of Jesus who make other disciples of Jesus. Being in relationship with Jesus and with each other is the core of who we are!

We regularly have an event called a Small Group Connect where Small Group Leaders will be ready to meet you and tell you about our Small Groups here at College Heights and get you connected to one! We have Small Groups that meet on various days of the week. Or you can communicate directly with Aaron Wheeler, our Small Groups Minister to find out more about small groups and how to join one.
