Life Groups

As we go into the Spring of 2019, we are going to focus on creating "Space for God" as we "FaithTalk" and "FaithWalk" in our everyday living.

"Whoever claims to live in God must live as Jesus did." 1 John 2:6

I invite you to do Life Together with the larger Body of Christ so that we may edify one another. Winter/Spring Life Groups begin on February 3 and last through April 20.

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!
