Find a LIFE Group

LIFE Groups are all about growth as they provide an opportunity to study the Bible, develop deep relationships, and grow with a small group of people. Our desire is to see everyone involved in a LIFE Group – they meet regularly throughout the year in various locations, sizes and forms.

 

When able, groups meet in person at church, someone’s home or a restaurant. Some groups even meet exclusively online using tools like Zoom or Skype. Contact the group leader for more information.

Some groups meet weekly, some meet biweekly and some spend a lot of time together!

It’s helpful to do some leg work before you join a group to make sure it’s the best fit for you. Talk with your pastor and make sure to describe what you’re looking for. Also, make sure you connect with the leader and ask some questions about the group so that you can understand the dynamics before getting involved. In the end, it’s okay if you don’t click. You can try out several before making a commitment.

Wednesday, 7:00pm - 8:30pmWomen, Zoom Weekly Zoom

Study: Cultivating Contentment in a Broken World

It can be hard to be content. Our culture encourages us to covet and consume in ways that are contrary to biblical teaching. This study defines what biblical contentment is and what it means for the Christian life. It helps Christians recognize how the cultivation of contentment is fundamentally rooted in understanding and resting in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In Him, we find ultimate contentment. By joining this women’s group you can expect to experience Christian community in a unique way and receive timely teaching from the Lord.

This group meets via Zoom.  Contact the leader to obtain necessary links for materials and Zoom.
