A LifeGroup is a small group of people who meet regularly around a common interest for the purpose of growing closer to Christ.
We believe big power lies within small groups. Over the centuries, God has used small groups to ignite reformations, usher in revivals, and rewrite history books. We offer two LifeGroup semesters: (February - June) and (August - December). LifeGroups open their doors to anyone and everyone.
