Maybe you live in NW Fresno. Maybe you have kids and would like a group with childcare. Maybe you like the idea of having a weekly potluck dinner/fellowship together. Maybe you are looking for a relaxed group where we can take Sunday morning's topic to a deeper level rather than adding an additional reading to your day. Maybe you want to become more like Jesus alongside others who want that too. All of these would be great reasons to join this group!

Anyone who wants to be more like Jesus and to cultivate new relationships.
