Adults (Groups)

Weekly Adult Groups

At Raintree, we don’t want to be a church with small groups, we want to be a church OF small groups. This means that groups are crucial to accomplishing our purpose as a biblical church. For some of Pastor Ryan’s thoughts on why small groups matter, click HERE.
