LifeGroups

LifeGroups are small groups of up to 16 people who join to do Christian life together.  The most joyful Christian walk is done in community, where people share common faith, support each other, grow spiritually, and serve their neighbors together. They are covenant groups that are intentionally multiplying, that is, as a group meets its maximum size, members are trained and sent out to start new LifeGroups as the ministry grows.

LifeGroups may meet on Sunday mornings or weekday evenings, at the church or off campus.  Each meeting is 60-90 minutes with focus and content chosen by the group’s input.

Interested?  Sign up here or contact one of the pastors at the church office.
