The theme of our church is “Living the L.I.F.E. together”.  We are all want to grow in our love for God and for one another.  One of the places we can do this is in a L.I.F.E. group.  We have groups that involve different ages, interests, and life stages.  But, what they all have in common are these elements:  We eat together, catch up on each other’s lives, look at God’s Word together and pray for one another.

If you are interested learning more about a L.I.F.E. group, please contact one of the leaders below or fill in the LIFE Group Connect Card at the bottom of this page. We are excited to get you connected!
