We believe life is better connected.



We believe God created us to live in relationship with others so that we can grow in our faith, receive care in life’s ups and downs, and serve others. Connection is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Life Groups exist—to make these life-changing connections relevant and accessible to you.  We have more than 20 different life groups so that you can choose one that is right for you.  


Most life groups meet every Wednesday night for a 9-week period at 7pm.  We do have life groups that meet on different days of the week as well.  If you are new to Life Groups or to the church, we can help you find the perfect life group that fits your lifestyle.   Click here.



WEDNESDAY NIGHTS @ 7PM
