Life Groups

The Greatest Commandment!

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength."
"You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Mark 12:30-31

This summer we are back, by demand, with Life Groups that will allow space for you to grow in your love for God, as well as your neighbors. I invite you to do Life Together so that we may edify one another. I encourage you to share your life and your gifts with the larger body of Christ, as well as with those outside of the body. - Margareth Valui, Family Life and Discipleship Pastor

Life Groups are groups of 7-15 people that meet together each week to learn about the Bible, to grow and to have fun meeting new people. Our Summer trimester starts May 19th and ends on August 10th, 2019. Sign up Now. Some of our small groups are ongoing and can be joined at any time. If you are interested in leading a Life Group, or have ideas about what groups you'd like to see, fill out this Life Group Leader Commitment Form! For more information, contact Margareth Valui at margareth@scfbc.org or call 408-241-7635.
