HomeSmall Groups

The vision of theAlley’s small groups ministry is to connect people to each other and to the Lord through fellowship, prayer and Bible study. The goal is that every adult who desires to be in a small group will have that opportunity. Small groups can be one-to-one, a group of 3 or larger. They can be same gender or both gender.


The table below is a dynamic listing of current small group opportunities through theAlley.
