Life Groups

Mid-size Life Groups are a great place to connect to fellow faith-filled folks on Sunday mornings. Groups range from 20-70 in size and are mostly formed by age and stage of life. Their purpose is to build community while studying God’s Word. No need to pre-register before attending—you’ll be warmly welcomed whenever you’re able to pop in.
