You were made for community, come experience life-change and belonging in relationships.

Life groups provide people, from all walks of life, the opportunity to connect and have spiritual conversations with one another. Whether you decided to follow Jesus today or a long time ago, growing in your faith in Jesus is a process and that process was never meant to happen in isolation. Taking Next Steps toward to grow as a follower of Jesus happens best and most authentically in the context of community. A Life Group can give you the space to share, grow, laugh, and be known. We invite you to be a part of this community and join a Life Group today.

What is a Home LIFEgroup?
A Home LIFEgroup is 6-12 adults (individuals or couples) gathering in the home of the LIFEgroup leader or a home of one of the LIFEgroup members for the purpose of building relationships, studying God’s Word together, helping one another, corporate prayer and being on mission with God as a group.
How often does a LIFEgroup meet?
A Home LIFEgroup will typically meet twice a month. The day of the week and duration that a Home LIFEgroup meets differs.
What will we study?
Group leaders typically choose their own studies. Typically these studies will be through RightNow Media.
