Life Groups

Life Groups are a place where you can share your life with others. The bigger our church gets the smaller we want to be. This happens by getting connected in a Life Group. We have a variety of groups with different topics and interests. They consist of people just like you who open their homes or meet at church to connect with you! Life Groups exist to help each of us grow in our relationship with God and build lasting friendships that will support, strengthen and encourage us in our daily walk with the Lord.

As you read through this list prayerfully consider which Life Group God has chosen just for you. Get connected in a Life Group today and see your life begin to change.
It's never too late to join a Life Group! Start attending one this week!

Going Deeper Groups

These groups, located in various homes, are designed to help one another go deeper in their walk with God and build relationships with one another. The groups will go deeper into the topic from the previous Sunday’s message, with interaction and discussion about applying God’s truth to your lives. There will be time to share praise reports and also pray for one another.
