Life Groups

We are going deep this fall! As the Psalmist wrote, "Deep calls to deep" (Psalm 42:7). The Word of God will direct our path in the roar of the waterfalls, and when waves and breakers sweep over us. The Bible will give us practical directions for our everyday lives. I hope and pray that we will be like the believers in the early church, where "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." (Acts 2:42)

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 Fall trimester starts September 1st and ends on November 23rd, 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.
