Greenhouses: Small Groups for Winter 2019

January 13th through February 24th

Artisan’s small groups, called Greenhouses, are a place where Artisans can grow together toward authentic faith, practicing Artisan’s values in a smaller context. Greenhouses are for people who are looking to deepen their connection with God and each other.
Each week, groups will delve into Deep waters together through scripture, prayer, and service.

Groups will meet weekly through the week of February 24th.
