Take your first step at
The Orchard by choosing
the congregation near you.

LIFE Groups are all about growth as they provide an opportunity to study the Bible, develop deep relationships, and grow with a small group of people. Our desire is to see everyone involved in a LIFE Group – they meet regularly throughout the year in various locations, sizes and forms.


When able, groups meet in person at church, someone’s home or a restaurant. Some groups even meet exclusively online using tools like Zoom or Skype. Contact the group leader for more information.

Some groups meet weekly, some meet biweekly and some spend a lot of time together!

It’s helpful to do some leg work before you join a group to make sure it’s the best fit for you. Talk with your pastor and make sure to describe what you’re looking for. Also, make sure you connect with the leader and ask some questions about the group so that you can understand the dynamics before getting involved. In the end, it’s okay if you don’t click. You can try out several before making a commitment.
