Life Groups

Life Groups typically consist of about 10-15 people, and are a great way to meet new people, make lasting friendships, grow in a relationship with God, and make a difference in the life of someone else. Life Groups offer our best environment of ministry care, support, and connection.

Caron Overbeek, Life Group Coordinator

join one or more of our LIfe Groups!

Together in a Life group we are able to connect with each other and encounter God together in Christ centered community. Life groups are the heartbeat of our church and are based out of Acts 2:42-47.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.  Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,  praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

Supper Groups

A Supper Group is a great opportunity to connect with one another over food, fun and fellowship.  There is anywhere between 8 to 12 people in a supper group. We meet once a month in homes, restaurants or even at church to share a meal.
