Why Life Groups? 

Life Groups exist so that we can "live together." It is the process of building a community that glorifies God in every aspect of life through making disciples who make disciples. So if you want to grow in your walk with God and better worship Him with your life, then come join one of our life groups. Our life groups take on the personalities of the people that compose them. They can look like a Bible study in someones living room with snacks and drinks or a group of grown men playing basketball and studying scripture at the end. Some people call these "traditional life groups" and "affinity groups." Whatever you call them makes no difference. They both serve the same purpose. Life together to glorify God through making disciples who make disciples.
