Spring Small Groups

Small Groups are a vital part of the ministries of Bay Hills. 

We want and encourage everyone to be a part of a group. Maybe just for a season or find a group you want to share your life with for a longer time. Either one or any thing in between helps you to meet people, grow in your walk, and become a part of this community.

New to groups? Check out one of our new Discipleship Classes available on Tuesday evenings. 

Small group sign ups are closed. New group sign ups will resume in the fall.

If you would like more information on groups please contact:
