LIFE GROUPS: 

SMALL GROUPS, BIG IMPACT!

We weren't made to do life alone! God created us to depend on one another and share in the highs and lows.


In a world that promotes going at it alone, we know God created us for connection and community. God designed us to grow in truth and grace alongside others. In a Life Group, we find safety, friendship, and authenticity.


Let us help you find a Life Group from the list below that will help you grow in your faith in Jesus and relationship with new and old friends.


Click on the leader's information to email them to find out about a group. Also feel free to contact our Director of Life Groups, McLean Murphy at any time.
