Life Groups

Church rows should lead to family circles.

A Place to Belong.

We believe that Life Groups are essential to living Jesus-centered lives. Groups help move us from rows to circles as we connect, encourage, and grow together. They help create an environment where we can build relationships that encourage and challenge each of us as we put our faith into practice each and every day.

Connect – Life Groups are a great place to connect with others. We have several Life Groups that meet in homes or at church on different days of the week to allow everyone the opportunity to connect with the right group for you.

Encourage – Life Groups are not meant to just meet new people. They are designed to help each of us to develop deep relationships that cause us to grow in our faith and love of Jesus. Groups create an environment for encouragement, challenge, care, prayer, and accountability.

Grow – Ultimately our relationships with others should help promote mutual growth in our relationships with Jesus. Groups provide time for prayer and Bible study in hopes to deepen our understanding, commitment, and love for Jesus. As we grow we continue to become equipped to help others live Jesus centered lives.

Hebrews 10:24-25 - Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Small groups typically run for a semester in the fall and a semester in the spring with a break for the summer and the holiday season. If you would like to join a group mid-session that may be a possibility based on group sizes and availability. Please reach out to make us aware of your desire to join a group and we will do our best to find one for you!
