Fellowship sits at the heart of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Christian teaching about fellowship means that to believe is to belong. God calls in order to invite us into fellowship, into a relationship with his only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. And to be in fellowship with Jesus, the Bible makes clear, is to discover the joy of living in community with others who have made their way to the foot of the Cross. That’s the good news of the gospel!

What is a small group?
Small groups are gatherings that meet throughout the year all around Tulsa, in homes, coffee shops, or at Church. Many are structured around people walking through life stages together — groups like young adults, parents, or seniors. Some groups meet year-round, while others come together for special seasonal studies like Lent. The group focus often follows sermon series curriculum, but can also feature Bible studies or book studies. Wherever you are in life, there is a small group for you!
