LifeGroups are small groups of people that gather periodically in various locations and homes around town to share in life, activity, and conversation. The format is simple, laid back, non-threatening and very comfortable. The main news is... you’re invited!
Here in LifeGroups relationships are built, embraced, encouraged, and lived. These ongoing meetings are all about the kind of authentic community that only comes from spending time being close. You’ll find a place so comfortable you’ll be at ease sharing your heart as well as learning to listening to others’. We sincerely think you'll love it!
Here's a quick look at this semester's various groups. (email us for additional info)
