"So support one another. Keep building each other up as you have been doing" - 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Life Groups provide a place for people to be seen, heard and valued. They are not necessarily Bible studies, though some groups may connect around that. Life Groups provide a connecting anchor for those who are in the same season of life, enjoy similar activities or are simply friends choosing to prioritize in-person connections. Below are some of the life groups we have available for you to join. Please feel free to contact the group leader to get more information on how to get connected to that group.
We also encourage you to consider starting your own group. If you want help connecting with others that enjoy similar hobbies and activities as you do, or want to take advantage of the variety of video teaching we have available on topics like marriage, parenting, finances and spiritual growth, please contact us at email@example.com.
