They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. - Acts 2:42

Our Mission

The purpose of Life Groups is to connect people with others and grow spiritually through Bible study, service, community, and prayer. 

Our Vision

The vision of Life Groups is to see groups that reproduce themselves so that all members of the church grow spiritually through vibrant serving Life Groups.


. . . so that we may present everyone mature in Christ. - Col 1:28


We dig deep into God's word


We life each other up in prayer


We serve our church and community as a group 


We are a second family.
