Life Groups

Grow spiritually and do life together!

What are Life Groups?

Life Groups are our opportunity for small groups of people to get together in a comfortable, stress-free place where individuals meet new friends, learn to apply Biblical principles to their everyday lives, pray together, do life together, and serve someone or someplace in our community together. Life groups run from February–April and September–November each year. This is a great opportunity to take your next step closer to Christ in a small group setting.
