Sharing Life Together
It’s couches and porches and kitchen tables. It’s hearing a story that makes us laugh or a need that make us pray. Life Groups provide an informal way to connect with others and build friendships with those in our church family. Groups often share a meal, open God’s Word, ask questions, find answers, pray for one another as they do life together.
We believe God created us to live in and enjoy the community of others. Joys are multiplied, burdens lightened, and faith deepened through a Life Group connection. To find out more or to share your interest in participating in a Life Group, click here.

The name of such groups varies from church to church. We call them 'Life Groups' because we want those who participate to learn the joy of sharing life together with other believers.
The primary purpose is to foster growth in spiritual maturity as the group grows in relationship with one another.
The groups have six primary elements which are: fellowship, prayer, topical studies, evangelistic efforts, serving one another, and growing in life surrender as worshippers.
Most meet twice a month but some meet weekly or monthly.
Some groups welcome children and provide childcare during all or a portion of the group time. The church happily takes care of these childcare expenses.
If your group does not offer childcare and you need to hire your own, please complete the Childcare Reimbursement Form and the church will reimburse your expenses.
