Fall Life Groups

Fall Life Group Semester!

Life Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. None of us are meant to be an isolated, island. God has designed us to be insulated and growing through healthy, community. But meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Life Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.



Befriend – Co-Ed Life Group
Is real friendship too risky? We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat to the safety of our small, self-made digital worlds. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. We invite you to see the breath of Christ’s love toward people we avoid.

Driven By Eternity – Co-Ed Life Group
Are you ready for the day that you will stand before the Lord and give an account of your life? Drawing on the principles in 2 Corinthians 5:9-11, John Bevere reminds us that all believers will stand before God and receive what they have earned in life. In building your life to be ready for that day, and maintaining an eternal frame of reference, you will develop a significant life.
