Life Groups

We are going to go into the summer trimester of Life Groups while some groups are meeting in person and other using zoom. Do Life Together with the larger body of Christ so that we may edify one another. Summer Life Groups begin on May 23, and last through August 14, 2021.

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.
