L.I.F.E. Groups
What are life groups? Loving Individuals through Fellowship and Evangelism. You weren't created to do life alone. Being part of a L.I.F.E. Group means having people you can talk to, depend on, and explore God's Word with. Getting plugged in with a group is a great place to start when looking to get connected. If you're new to the concept, a life group is 10-15 people who get together (mostly) weekly to explore faith and do life together. If you're wondering what your next step is after coming on a Sunday morning, you've found it. We really believe that taking the step to join a group will be a decision you won't regret.
