Winter Small Group registration for the Spring Semester
About our Small Groups:
Still confused? Here's a "How's a "HOW TO" video about Wednesday's registration.
Notes: If you are continuing in your group from last year (and your leaders are aware), you do not need to register. Any attempt to register in several groups at once will lead to an immediate forfeit of your spot in those groups.
Who Can Register?
