Life Groups

What is a Life Group? A Life Group is a small group of people (4-14) who are committed to meeting together regularly for the purpose of studying God's Word, prayer, and investing in the community and each other. Our goal is that through these meaningful relationships we would strengthen our love for God, our neighbors, and one another.

We are also equipping each group with a small amount of money to be used in an opportunity for service to others. This might be buying groceries for a neighbor in need, throwing a birthday party for someone who lives alone, or any number of things that a small group of people might do to bless somebody else. Our hope is that by doing this, we would create a culture that is seeking to share the love and service of Christ with others.

Check out the locations and contact information for some of our Life Groups.
