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

Some Life Groups have a minimal cost for material or book.

#11  Ladies Bible Study (1 and 2 Corinthians)

Study:  Supplemental material for 1st and 2nd Corinthians

They came from vastly different backgrounds—Jewish and Greek, rich and poor, religious and nonreligious—and they were learning how to live as one people. In these two letters, Paul challenges the Corinthians to fight for unity and to embrace their identity as one body made of many different parts—a challenge still relevant to us today. Read with us as we spend nine weeks in 1 & 2 Corinthians, learning together what it means to be the body of Christ.
