At Home Ground we believe in real transformation.
First, it starts with us, as individuals and then it goes into the church which creates a ripple effect into our community.
Are you ready for transformation?
"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." - Proverbs 27:17
These gender specific groups are for you to gather with other men or women, to talk openly about your challenges and pray together through every season.
Life is better in community.
We believe that everyone should be in a small group where they feel that they belong and experience authentic, loving relationships. Out of this place, a person can feel called to maturity in their relationship with Christ and to live out this walk in the world that is hurting and lost.
Life can be extremely challenging.
That is why we have created a safe and authentic space for you to come and share your battles with us. Our care team is equipped to handle these with professionalism and empathy. We are open to our community - so call us if you need to chat and receive some counsel.
Feel At Home
One way to feel connected and like you are a part of the family here at Home Ground is to serve. We love to welcome new volunteers for our various ministries - kids, hosting, worship, media and more!
If you're not sure what your spiritual gifting is then we'd love to help you discover this.
At Home Ground we place huge value on the younger generation.

Find Your Place
Have you wondered what you have to offer? Ever thought about what you are good at and how to serve within that gift?We are here to help you navigate those questions, and others, as you hone your God-given gifting.
