Find a LIFE Group

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 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 about what you’re looking for, and make sure to connect with the leader to ask questions about the group dynamics before getting involved. In the end, it’s okay if you don’t click - you can try out several before making a commitment.
