the AVENUE to


Relationships are created, bonds are developed, and community is built. We have growth groups available for any age, life stage, or season you are walking through. 

At the AVENUE we desire to see each person grow no matter what age and what background. Whether you have been walking with God for years or are just starting your journey with faith, we are here to walk with you. We have growth groups for all ages and throughout the week. Some groups meet in homes and some groups meet at the church. We believe that going deeper with God and deeper with each other is the best way for people to grow in their faith.
