LIFE Groups

 

Why LIFE Groups?

We believe that church is a place of grace, therefore, we want people to KNOW Community.  We believe that belonging happens best in LIFE Groups; it’s where we do life together! 

The Bible challenges us to fellowship with one another, love one another,

bear one another’s burdens, and encourage one another. 

This is not easy as we are pulled by life in so many directions,

but once you find a group, you will enjoy the blessings of doing life together.
