Life Groups

Travel Together on Your Spiritual Journey

Being in community with other Christ followers is vital to our spiritual growth, which is why we have Life Groups. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, we think it’s important to travel with others. Our dream is that group members will connect with each other, grow in their relationship with God, and lovingly serve the communities in which they live.

Find a Life Group

Life Groups are groups of 8-16 people who meet weekly, online or in homes, from September to May to engage in community while diving deeper into the Sunday messages. Typically, Life Groups meet for three 10-week sessions, with easy on and off-ramps.

We want life groups to be a place where people flourish, which is why the role of a life group leader is so important! Life group leaders have the privilege of creating environments in which seeds of faith are planted and watered in the lives of those they lead, while trusting God with the growth (1 Corinthians 3:6).
