large group. small group. serve.

What are the next steps for me or my family?


Our answer to that question is pretty simple. We want to lead all who attend Watkinsville to become wholehearted followers of Jesus. We believe this can be best lived out in three areas of our church:

Large Group

Each week we gather together on Sunday mornings at 9am, 10:15am, and 11:30am* (*During the school year). We sing songs together and listen to teaching from God's Word. This is the easiest way to connect to our church. But we hope you take the next step and find a group to join. 

Small Group

Smaller Groups provides an environment for you to follow Jesus with other believers, not alone. We have groups for kids, students, and adults

Area of Service

Finding a place to serve within the church allows us to show others the love of Jesus and serve as He did.  



Have more questions? We would love to talk with you.
