Connecting to Jesus happens in an instant when a decision is made to recognize Him for who He is, repent of sin, and follow Him. 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 is crucial but that happens best and most authentically in the context of community. That is where LIFEgroups come in.

Home LIFEgroups

Several Home Lifegroups meet throughout the community for 3 month semesters. Each group has different meeting days, times, frequency (no less than twice a month), number of people, and other details (study, food provided/bring food, kids/no kids, child care/no childcare, etc.). All groups are open to all ages/phases of life.

reGroup is over and our Home LIFEgroups are full. If you would like to be part of a small group, check out our ongoing Sunday LIFEgroups below.

If you attend First and are interested in leading a Home LIFEgroup, please use the Contact Form or email Discipleship Pastor, Steve Lytle at
