LOCAL COMMUNITY and Discipleship

Our Life Groups are committed to creating an environment where you can wrestle with what it looks like to faithfully follow Jesus. Through discussing Scripture, building friendships, and sharing life and faith together, you can grow deeper in your relationship with God and others. New groups launch regularly, in homes or online.
