Fall 2016 - Starting Sept 14

scroll down to see current groups


River of Life is a big place. Life Groups help it feel small by giving you a group of friends to connect with in a real way. At a Life Group people come together to ask questions, learn about their relationship with God, and gain support through good and bad times. We are simply not meant to travel this journey alone.
