We believe part of living "life to the full" as Jesus taught can only be done in community. Because of the dominance of digital media, now more than ever, we are isolated and alone. And this lack of real, authentic community is robbing us of an essential ingredient to our holistic spiritual health. Thankfully, it's an essential part of our church's mission to help you experience community. If you're interested in joining a Life Group, complete the form below and our coordinator will contact you soon. 

New Life Groups are being created regularly or you can join one of the existing ones. The Coordinator can help you find a group that is the best fit for you. One of the best ways to get started in a Life Group is to join Rooted, a 10-week small group format experience designed to help ground you in the essential elements of faith and give you the option to continue meeting as a Life Group after the study is completed.


  • Small groups of people (generally 6-14) that meet about once a week for about 1-2 hours.
  • Gathering together allows us to build strong relationships and to be together in the Word of God.

  • Individual members often stay in touch between meetings.

  • Life Group leaders lovingly guide and organize their group's activities, acting primarily as facilitators to keep the group purposeful and life-giving.

  • Conversations are open, interactive and respectful of others views.

  • Build genuine friendships that care for and encourage each other through the ups and downs.

  • Several childcare solutions are used to meet members' needs. Some groups have no kids.

  • Life Groups develop their own personalities over time. We encourage you to try them on for a fit until you find the one that works best for you.
