Life Groups

What is a Life Group?

A Life Group is a group of people who meet together on a regular basis to share life and grow in their faith together. These groups may be formed around a life stage, a topic, an activity, or common interest. There are several types of available Life Groups, including ones for students, men, women, married with or without kids, and care groups for mental health and divorce.
