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.

This weekly LIFE group is for women of all ages and stages of life. Together we will journey through the book of Hebrews, exploring how God has “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). At home, we will complete one lesson per week in the book, Better: A Study of Hebrews, by Jen Wilkin. Together we will fellowship around God’s Word and disciple one another through intercessory prayer, encouragement, and care. We will also learn from the recorded teaching of author and Bible teacher, Jen Wilkin.

We plan to study Hebrews during Session 1 only. We will study a different book of the Bible during Session 2. You are welcome to join our group for both sessions. Or, you may join us for just one session and choose another Wednesday morning LIFE group for the other session.

Session Two: January 5–April 27, 2022
