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.

Whether you are a military mom, a Sumter born and raised mom, a mom raising babies in diapers, or a mom sending kids off to college, this is for you! This is a place for women to find comfort and community with other women who get their joys and their struggles, while encouraging each other with the Word of God.
