Life Groups

Real spiritual growth and deep connection with others happen more quickly in a small circle than in a large group. That's why we encourage every individual—married or single, male or female, beginning to explore Christianity or long-time Christ follower—to step into the community that is offered in Life Groups.

Typically made up of eight to fourteen people, Life Groups meet regularly to encourage one another to grow closer to Christ. Life Groups gather weekly, with a leader, for three, ten-week sessions a year. Time is spent in homes, deepening relationships through discussion, prayer, and encouraging one another to impact the world around us.

The Rooted Experience

When you join a Life Group for the first time, your group will start by going through the Rooted experience. Over the ten-week Rooted journey, your group will develop lasting connections and build a common foundation for your future together as a group.

During the Rooted experience, your group will meet at the church campus, discussing questions like:

  • How does God speak to Us?
  • Where is God in the midst of suffering?
  • How can I make the most of my life?

There is also a gathering time for a serving experience determined by your group, and a Celebration Dinner at the end of the 10-weeks of Rooted.

Child care is available for Sunday groups for an additional fee. Registration is required.

New Life Groups are forming now! Sunday groups (4:00–6:00 pm) start on February 17.

The cost of the Rooted experience is $15 per person, which covers the cost of the participant guide, snacks for weeks 1 and 8, and the Celebration Dinner. Child care is available on Sundays ($55 for 1 child, $88 for two children, and $110 for three or more for the full session).

Please contact us if a scholarship is needed. We do not want money to be a barrier to this life-changing experience.
