Life Groups

LIFE is better when it's lived together!  Everyone deserves a safe place where they can experience "LIFE TOGETHER" with friends.  

In a Life Group, you will meet people at various stages in their Christianity who gather in various places on a semester basis, discussing various topics to develop their relationship with God and others.  Members develop friendships, pray for one another's needs, and find ongoing ways to stay connected through social activities. 

All of us long to be connected:  It's how God created us!  Our groups give you the opportunity to connect with other people just like you who are endeavoring to live life to the fullest for Jesus Christ.  Life Groups let you pursue LIFE TOGETHER in the company of friends.

Our Groups focus on meeting needs in 8 different areas.  We call them HUBS.  They are:

  • MEN
  • WOMEN
  • MARRIAGE & FAMILY
  • DISCUSSION
  • MISSION
  • PRAYER
  • STUDENTS & YOUNG ADULTS
  • FREEDOM
