Life Groups

Why Join a Life Group?

Because God created us with a need for community, we believe in doing life together. Life Groups are small groups that Gather to foster community, Grow in our faith, and Go share Jesus with others.

Life Groups are a great way to develop existing or newly formed friendships. With at least one other person – or maybe two or three, you can begin your own Life Group to study God’s Word together!

How To Develop Your Group

Because this is YOUR group, you and your friends can decide how often and where you want to meet; however, weekly meetings are strongly encouraged to achieve the best results in your spiritual growth. To keep you on track, here is a guide to help you maintain a rhythm and
keep you on track in your time together.
