  • finding community in a Life group

    Life Groups move people from the Sunday morning teaching and worship environment to meeting in a small group in a member's home for fellowship, prayer, and study. The essential task of a Life Group is to know one another by asking what God is doing in and through them each week.  We strive to apply biblical truths to our daily lives, serve as a group, and support and encourage each other through prayer.
