Our Life Groups


The theme song of the old tv show Cheers tells us that "sometimes you wanna' go where everybody knows your name."

And it's so true. Human beings are wired for relationships, so we naturally seek to belong somewhere, to belong to something where everybody knows our name.

That's what our life groups are about. They are the primary way we live out our vision of being an authentic community. Each life group consists of anywhere from 5-20 people who gather together on a regular basis to grow in their understanding of God, to care for each other, to serve together, and to have fun. 

"They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes, and shared their meals together.....And the Lord added to their number day by
day those who were being saved" (Acts 2:46-47). 

We have 18 groups that will be launching - or relaunching -- this Winter, and 11 are open for more people. To give one a try, sign up by clicking here: Test Drive a Fall Life Group.
