Small Groups

Welcome to TJN Small Groups!

We would love to see everyone in our church to be in a healthy Small Group. Our team is passionate about getting people in groups, starting new groups and getting them healthy. Small Groups are three or more people who meet together regularly to balance the five purposes found in Acts 2:42-47. Whether you are looking for a Men’s, Women’s, Couples, Singles, Workplace group or anything else that describes your preferences and state of life best, there is one that is just right for you!
