IN PERSON & ONLINE Sunday gatherings IN PERSON & ONLINE at 10:00am Plan Your Visit

Group Link

You have a community to encourage & equip you, laugh & cry with you, and love you through it all.

You have a group.

Group (n): a number of individuals coming together who have something that unites them in relationship.

No matter how hard you try, how spiritual you are, how much money you make, or whatever, you cannot do life on your own. You were not made to live in isolation.

You were made for community.

Community is more than just coming together once a week at church, saying "hi," hearing a good message, singing some good songs and being on your way. Community happens when people intentionally get together in a group during the week to be together in friendship and relationship with Jesus at the center. It's less about learning (which is important too!) and more about loving.

You can face life with the kind of love and support that God has in mind for you. We're gonna help you find that group of people at Group Link.

There's a space for you to get in a group.

Group Link is designed to help you get into a group so that you can avoid that awkward first encounter or the uneasiness that comes from developing new acquaintances. Let's be real - even adults can find making and keeping friends difficult sometimes. Let us help you break the ice and find the people God has in mind for you at Group Link.

Group Link is a free event but requires registration so we can provide enough goodies for all and begin finding you a great group of people to walk with you and beside you.

IN-PERSON GROUPS: Sunday, January 24, 2021 from 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Group Link is held at Event Center West - the usual meeting location for Simple Church's Sunday Gathering.

Are there online options?


But can we be real?

Statistically online groups do not have great attendance, do not grow in relationships and depth, and overwhelmingly peeter out and eventually dissolve. We also believe and affirm the necessity of the physical gathering of God's people as commanded in the Bible.

We discourage online groups.

We are willing to help you, however, if that is your only option and you can choose to register for an "online version" of group link to help you get in and establish a group.

ONLINE GROUPS: Sunday, January 24, 2021 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Group Link for online groups will be on Zoom. Meeting links and details will be emailed upon confirmation.
