Groups & Classes

Canopies are our name for small groups.  These create more intimate gatherings for people to connect and share their lives with other members of the Grandview community. See if there is a canopy for you!

Canopy Groups

Canopy Logo

In an amazing natural phenomenon called “canopy shyness,” trees in some forests grow in patterns that allow light to permeate the forest below. The whole forest can be healthy and grow together even though the individual canopies are spread out. This is the idea behind Canopy Groups at Grandview. Canopy Groups are how we gather together in small groups while also being connected to the larger family at Grandview. The goal of Canopy Groups are to gather people together from different places. We have groups for all ages!

Some Canopy Groups are Sunday School classes that have been meeting for decades. Other Canopy Groups meet once a week, while some meet every other week - and a few just meet once a month! Some Canopy Groups “do” things together, some just sit and visit, some study the Bible, some meet in their neighborhoods, and some find still other ways to share time together. Whatever you're looking for, there is a Canopy group for you or space to start one!
