To follow Jesus is to be on a life-long, adventurous journey. But none of us is meant to be on the journey alone. Spiritual growth doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s not a solitary process. We must be with others, intentionally banding together for encouragement, support, study and prayer. We recognize the importance of being with others to the process of discipleship and building community. That’s why we have Life Groups. Most groups meet weekly to study scripture, pray together, sometimes share a meal or do fun stuff together. Groups are encouraged to serve their community together in some way. 

Fall Start Dates for Life Groups Listed Below
