Life Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren't always easy to find. That's why Life Groups exist- to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Find Your Group

We have two Types of Life Groups and we Encourge to Join Both

G3 groups is a study group made up 3 to 5 men or women who studies through the bible together yearly. It is a more intimate group where deep relationships can be formed. They meet at various times during the week at various places. Our Grow Groups are a little larger made up of women and men and typically meet on Sunday Mornings.
