Life Groups

We are going to go into the summer trimester of Life Group while Sheltering in Place. How do we do Life Together while separated? Some Life Groups will continue to meet online by using "Zoom" until we can be together again in person. These Life Groups will continue to meet, pray, and study Scripture together virtually. I hope you take this unique opportunity for real-time human conversations that let us connect in a small group and help you grow in your faith life.

Do Life Together with the larger body of Christ so that we may edify one another. Summer Life Groups begin on May 24, and last through August 15, 2020.

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.
