Life Groups

We believe that being part of the church also means being in relationship with the people. It’s not very easy to build strong friendships when you’re sitting in a church service; that’s why LIFE Groups are so vital to the health of our church. We want every believer to be connected to other believers so that we can encourage one another as we move toward all that God has called each of us to be. In a Life Group you’ll find meaningful discussions based on God’s Word, friends who will pray with you, and warm hospitality. Our Life Groups meet twice a month in host homes.
