Renew: Winter-Spring Life Groups

We are going to go into the winter-spring trimester of Life Groups. Some groups meet in person while others meet via zoom. Do Life Together with the larger body of Christ so that we may edify one another. Fall Life Groups begin on February 5th and last through April 22nd, 2023.

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.
