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.

No Other Gospel: Paul's Letter to the Galatians 

Christians must hold fast to the truth of the gospel. When false teachers were distorting the gospel among the churches in Galatia, the Apostle Paul wrote an impassioned letter in order to defend the message of God’s grace in Christ. In No Other Gospel, Dr. Thomas walks us through the background, teaching, and importance of the letter to the Galatians. He encourages Christians to stand firm and rest in Christ for their salvation.

This is a mixed group that meets in the Sanctuary and includes video and discussion.

Please remember that you will be expected to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
