SMall Groups

We have several different small groups meeting each week to help develop our relationships with God and each other.  Some meet in homes, some at our building, some are for specific ages or stages, and some are for anyone and everyone.

Sunday Morning Groups meet at 9:00am each week. There are groups for teens, preteens, children, and nursery care available during this time as well!

Wednesday nights during the Fall and Spring groups meet to explore how Scripture applies to daily life, with dinner starting at 5:30 and several classes and small groups available afterwards starting at 6:30.  Groups for teens, preteens, children, and nursery care are available, as well!

For more info on our current groups see the below list or please email or call the office hvccoffice@hvcconline.com / 423-892-4270 or contact any of our staff.
